You ask, Robert answers.

This question comes from Andrew in Columbus, OH:

“My subcontractor didn’t show up for work, what should I do??”

Robert says: Fire them…….if this is not the first time they have done this to you.  If it is the first time find out the circumstances.  But be fair, quick and decisive with your decision.  Remember that a subcontractor is just like an employee.  If they are undependable and always have an excuse FIRE THEM!!  In today’s market you are in charge.  There are way to many people and companies out there that are very hungry.
