    Doesn't make sense.. Don't want to be a pain, but all of the guys on here understand that $100+ per hour can be made with your own truck. So why plow for someone else for $60/hr..

    Doesn't make sense to me, but to each his own

    i work in the western wayne areas might be interested in doing a little subbing
    but everything is still up in the air...as im sure it is with you also

    we might fill up all of our salters every night or we may run short if we dont start getting some contracts back soon

    i might posible have a 6yrd salter and a plow truck that could pick up some slack...let me know if you think you might be looking for something like that....if it dont work out oh well

    Simple Answer about subcontracting & 60.00/Hr ...

    There are so many guys who work concrete, brick, construction, ect ect that aren't carrying liability & Workers Comp, They get paid cash and they get paid every week or two. Sure guys can go out get thier own contracts, make all kinds of money, but do they really want to front up 20,000.00 + in salt & calcium and deal with hassles and deal with payments. And to this day, unless someone is getting thier own contract, I have NEVER seen anyone plowing for another company for over $100- hr. And No one is forcing anyone to work, Just advertising. Thanks, Mike
