Why include Staff information?
To display the trend between staff earnings and planter earnings. To see and compare averages. Staff make fair wages in comparison to planters. Staff at Next Gen earn day rates, which over the season amount to decent seasonal earnings. Staff averages are higher than all planting categories, but they are also more regular with less fluctuation, less pronounced highs and lows. This is to both increase planter understanding and to demonstrate that the staff day rate does add up over the season.
Why publish earnings in general?
Next Gen offers no camp cost and a variety of land types and associated prices. This information is shared to demonstrate that people are making decent wages while offering camp cost and working majority in faster, lower priced, ground (as compared to companies who only work in BC). We want to change the conversation in the industry from 'whats the base tree price' to 'what can be made in a season' and towards the human side of planting. Those two points seem unrelated, however, if people never get passed 'base tree price' it is hard to have conversations around other, very important topics, to those who work in tree planting.
