    here it is in a nutshell, I have the chance to pick up a significant amount of plowing this year.I operate my own trucks and employ drivers for them . I have tried everything under the sun to hire & retain good help from year to year,I'm currently held at bay with the inability to find help....any input would be great...

    You should check out the Networking forum that is on the bottom of Plowsite main page. That is where the contractors lists their location so you can find someone nearby you that may help you out. I think there are at least a member or two in Cleveland, Ohio area.

    Here is a link to the Networking forum:

    Look for school teachers -shop teachers 99% of the time they wont have school the next day(s) after a storm . and quite often they get out early if a storm is coming . They wont need benefits as they are taken care of by the teaching job

    A good source is also city employees, like firemen and police.
