Yes and most of my men get over scale and additional benefits, vacations (I pay for), a few extra holidays, a truck and bonuses. I will cover sick leave if they have a major issue car accident, heart issues etc.....Have covered long term employees up to a few months.

Plus most guys are averaging 8-20 hours OT a week and occasionally 30-40 OT, but that is not as often as it use to happen.

Yeah, that's close to DC. Everything is more expensive there I'm told. I'm friends with a few instructors down there. Are your guys in 26 Brian?
