How much to pay 18 yr. old hired hand?
Since schools shut down neighbor boy has been helping with farm work. His good help but little farm experience. For the most part I can point him in a direction and he can do it. He's done anything from disking to cleaning the shop. Good mechanic. What's he worth per hour?
We are paying $15.00 for that kind of help and $12.00 for help that you have to hold their hand.
Thanks, good to know
