Thread: Side business

    This is a seasonal business cuz. Our workers know that up front. Just like landscapers. Very hard to work with snow on the ground.

    I agree but its also their responsibility to find another job if the know the end of the season is getting near

    No you lay them off and give them unemployment. It is not there responsibility to find another job. We pay unemployment insurance this is what it's for. The unions do it all the time.

    NO, unemployment is supposed to be used as a stepping stone when you cant find another job, NOT for lazy people to use as income. If they weren't so lazy (multiple months collecting while never even looking for a job) we wouldn't need to pay unemployment taxes

    Unions are killing this country, to follow their lead is not the brightest thing to do. Than again, you were collecting unemployment as a union member while also collecting money from PWing, right?? I know a bunch of union workers (and a crap load more now that we've had 4+ casinos, with union employees, close) who scam the system, so I guess its ok everybody else to scam the system because the money is coming from "rich" business owners...

    Jim what are you talking about. I was never in the union. We have seasonal workers. If they can't get another job then they have every right to collect. I have only collected once in my life for 2 months. Get off your horse.

    Also why would you want your key employees finding another job? So when you call them back to start the season they tell you nope found another job. I don't want new employees every year.

    Actually I was working a non union job and doing power washing as well. So I don't know where you are getting your info from but check your source because you were missed informed.

    William,
    I would love to pay these guys year round but when the work and money flow stops then I must lay them off. It is usually from dec. 15th to February 20th. This year went till March 10th. We had a really bad winter and alot of snow. They are calling for a repeat winter so it might be the same. We work when we can but people aren't thinking of cleaning in the dead of winter. It costs me around 4-5 00 to pay into unemployment.
