Meat IS Murder. How can you have any pudding, if you don't eat your meat?

LMAO.  I thought for sure you were trolling.

Your prices are pretty low.  How can you make that happen for such a cheap price?

  • Contract the work out I-9.
  • $7 base pay per yard, a bonus structure for meeting/exceeding production goals.
  • Must have a transportation and tools, you provide bags and other supplies.


If you can keep customer acquisition costs down, and deal with turnover effectively, you can make money for doing basically nothing.

If someone can complete a yard and travel every 30 minutes, that's about $30k base per year working 5 8-hour days. If they can cut it down to 20 minutes it's $43k base. If you can get the logistics and scheduling right, one could reasonably drive the average time per yard down to 15 minutes, and that's a $58k base, probably close to $65k with a decent bonus structure.


After expenses and taxes, it's a shitty job (pun intended), but I bet convicts and youngsters would be willing and able. A motivated person could make a fair living...


Another option might be to employ mentally disabled people, such that you can pay sub-minimum wage and also give them opportunity. You'd need to provide supervision, transportation, tooling, and supplies.

LOL its not really my co..but good analysis. just not sure if the demand is really there..altho lots of lazyfuck dog owners for sure.

I assume this would attract the same type of employees as low wage dog walkers. usually teens, meth heads, animal lovers. 2.0 GPA college types

can u imagine being at a cocktail party and sum1 asks "so what do you do?"

That sounds like a shitload of work.  Volume volume volume.

You could get the Bernie Sanders types to put Trump flags on the turds, they would probably doo that shit for free.

I also know peeps that tried this. The problem is when you live in rural areas, or Detroit, no one cares where their dogs shit.

In Chicago, absolutely. I bet you would get a lot of older, Generation X peeps, that would do this part time as a second job to make extra $$$. They wouldn’t need benefits either.

You would.  But you'd have to triple your prices.  Try it, see what happens.  *chortle*

Pooper scoopers don't attend cocktail parties, they drink 40's in a brown bag with homeless people around a fire in a 55 gallon drum.
