Thanks for all the input. Creating the pay structure is all part of the larger plan and why I started the thread. I pay 12.50 for someone with absolutely no experience. People in this pay rate are often without a job already. I'm seeing that what I really need to do is network more and find better qualified people to pay higher wages. Working it out. My problems as of late really stem from an employee that needs to be replaced. More to come I'm sure.
