    Yes I've already heard every witty comment on this topic. Yes I understand that this is a huge issue and every company in the green industries biggest problem.

    I'm looking for success stories and techniques people have had and the methods they used. Obviously it's a struggle to find an employee that has or can obtain a Cdl. Good, safe climbers are a dime a dozen. Most guys cant remember how to untie a knot so throw any sort of certifications and education out the window.

    It would be ideal to get a younger person to work and mold him into the ideal employee but it's much easier said than done. Any one successful on this subject please let me know your ways.

    If you find someone young that wants to work and learn and is dependable... pay him enouph he won’t wander elsewhere .... the milenial generation for the most part is a bunch of entitled d-bags that you have to worry about hurting there feelings by telling them that they almost killed you or cost you your livlyhood . Overentitled and lazy . Want 17$ to work at McDonald’s and will spend all day playing on the Twitter and instagrams . And no matter what you do or how well you take care of them they will find anything and everything to complain about . Our nation has a bleak futer without some sort of wakeup !!
