This is very true, the fact is the cleaning industry has turned into a corrupt industry with illegal immigrants working for cleaning companies and trash & dash cleaning companies bidding jobs that has deflated so badly, it is one of those questions to ask. Is it worth it?
California is a terrible state to be in the cleaning business, we have the highest corporate tax, the highest workmen’s comp policies and the highest unemployment insurance.
The point is, profits are so low, I have not gotten any increases from any clients whatsoever, none except one. I have clients that have denied paying me more 10 years ago and still have not paid me more since then, especially with raising cost of wages, insurance and low ball competition.
So on this last reserve; I am hoping we can switch this situation around, that is voting for Trump, there is no other way to help our cleaning business than having the right president who cares about fair business.
