    CASH. Because i'm the subcontractor and don't have the contract so they just make out a check to me then i split it up. i made 25 grand few years back with 3 trucks after the expenses!

    I'm new to the business and in Central Iowa. A couple legit companies with big contracts have jumped at hiring my 2000 Sierra 2500 7'6" for $55/hr. They both seemed eager enough to lock down at $55 that I think $65 would have been a better rate to put out there. We're rookies this year and $55 is about what I was hoping for though.

    Let it snow!
