You got paid? I got told I was earning my keep and that the only pay I got was a roof over my head!
One of the cool things about your dad owning a machine shop is, you got to work for free. My dad had a buddy name Jerry Pyrtle who needed help in his shop one year…so I got to go to Jerry’s to split/disassemble dies and tear down various tooling so I could bring my dads part to him. There was about a week long period in there where Jerry loaned me out to one of his friends to help bale hay. $0/hr labor sub-sub-contracted out is still $0/hr. Baling hay is still probably my least favorite ‘job’ I’ve ever had. I’d probably have to be at $250/hr to even entertain the idea today.
That price is at least a couple of years old and I don’t know the bale weight. I’m obviously out of touch w today’s hay prices.
I wasn’t to far off.
$25/hr sure as shit wouldn't get me out to load square bales by hand!
They probably wouldn't like paying $5 a bale either.
Im thinking some of that good alfalfa is going for like $8/bale.
