I'm local and I can tell you your pay rate is well below the area average for what you're seeking. I don't have a CDL, nor am I a certified arb (I am highly skilled with a long list of good references) and I make more than that. Infact I made more than your top out pay starting out at the last 2 places I've been.
Not bitching as I have no reason to, I'm not in the job market, but if you want good people you gotta pay good money. I'm sure you're charging on par with the areas industry average so why pay your people below average? I wouldn't take a job starting at $23 to be honest...
Sorry to be so blunt.
