So many of these opening up.

 

I have done work for three of them and currently do work for two of them.

I charge them $60 an hr, min of an hr. I only do mowing.

 

I was doing weeding for one client thru Intergrated living but they are starting to use their own staff, "Volunteers" from the Work for the Dole scheme as I understand it....

 

We have work for the dole scheme here and its been bad for business for a few industries.
