2 pointsThis past fire season has prolonged the suffering for some. Too many machines and operators, not enough work to go around leads to B3E’s going for Jetranger rates and 30k/year pilot wages. Time to cut back on machines and operators
1 pointIf that was directed at me Just Looking I never blamed the employer. I'm going to make 6 figures this year in a 44 for the best employer I've ever worked for in my life. And the guy that I squeezed 30 grand out of owned a 7 figure home and all his machines outright. The only time I never saw him was when I needed him to sign my invoice to be paid. Every other time he was making sure he got his 14+ hours out of me a day.
