Grass cuts and SG

Just saw a memo that grass cuts will be starting at 25.00 net this year for lots up to 100 SF. Just if you were thinking it could not get any lower than last year. We noticed bunch of lots that were not cut last year. Wonder what is going to happen this year. They also will be assigning these to grass cut network only with less requirements. Wonder what is going to happen next year. 10.00 per lot?

They are trying to find the bottom and as long as people continue to work for them the bottom gets lower and lower.

SG will just charge you back $55 anyways. So just think of all the deductions you can use for being a non profit org.

I said sure why not.

So i said that s easy!! that would be 12.

She said how did i come up with that number?

Hmm, interesting questionnaire. I am sure recruiters will be busy this year with grass cuts and such. I am really interested to learn what is behind the logic of the company owners. So, last year they had all P&P folks drop like never before and apparently it made them thinking it must have been grass cut, not charge backs, but grass cuts (volume I guess), so they decided to shift the cuts to the grass cut network with simplified requirements and reduce the pay even further. Do they expect line of the people with WMC and E&O lined up? These two things together will cost more than profit from these cuts. Agh......

Are you kidding me? Lol. What does that have to do with cutting grass? And what person actually knows that right off the top of their head.
Unless it was to see if you couldnt do math. Oh they can't do math that means you can't understand that you're not making a profit. Youre hired? Btw thats an awesome answer zuse.
She seen you're able to think on your toes and thats not sg material. In my 27 yrs of being alive I can honestly say Thats the first time I have ever heard that question be asked...
