    Was wondering what everyone thought a person should get paid to run a truck you pay for(they just run my trucks)? Now keep in mind they get to collect on top of getting paid cash and get a 4 to 5 hour min. in case they show up and something happens(other day sat around and drank coffee/worked for a hour)? I see this type of question alot but would like some fresh input(area-$ amount). Just wanted to see if I'm being good to my guys? Thanks in advance!

    That is a good questions, we pay $20.00 per hour to drive the trucks or work on a side walk crew or run a skid loader or pusher. On those guys who own their trucks and equipment we negotiate based on the property and what we expect from them.
