✳Pricing Structure✳


🔸Just a few short years ago the minimum wage was $7.25 per hour. The current (2020) minimum wage is $11.80 per hour. New York State has already approved a plan to eventually increase the rate to $15.00. As we deeply value our employees, we choose to start our staff’s pay above minimum wage and require them to be certified to ensure a certain level of quality in the work we provide to our clients. We also choose to pay our staff gas mileage and offer generous raise incentives. This price increase is related to the escalation of minimum wage here in New York State, high increase in Square processing fees, the cost of living increase and increase in cost of supplies and gasoline. We value every person who works for our organization and we are fully committed to paying him or her to the best of our abilities as this is a physically demanding job with often long hours  away from family and a lot of driving/ wear and tear on vehicles.
