    I just resently got a call from ferindino&sons management for snow plowing 4 two cumberland farms parkink lots
    the problem is that the guy that was doing it couldnt
    handle it . so they send me the contract on what they are willing to pay .
    which is a joke and they want me to abide to a contract which states i am liable 4
    all damage and what not , when i cant even tell what damage has already been done by the previous guy because theres so much snow in the lot and there 2 cheap to get
    it removed .
    if anyone can give me some advice it would be greatly appreciated Thumbs Up

    I have to say it one more time. You just got to love these idiot managment companies, and what they expect you to sign away.

    I can sit at home on my butt and not make money. Why should I do work for someone and not make money for my time. You answered your question yourself. If the price they are willing to pay is ridiculous to you, then don't take the job. You aren't obligated to take a losing job. It's nice to make extra money, but it's not a great idea to lose money trying to make extra.
