Just always keep in mind that the assistant's time is worth something just like the performer's time. Ask yourself the question, could I perform this show without them? If you can't that makes them even more valuable.

I agree. If you are getting paid, the assistant should also. I pay my assistants well..... and I NEVER have a hard time finding one available! You reap what you sow.

I pay my assistants enough to make them feel valuable and wanted. Pay then too little and you will rapidly lose their goodwill.

You must always keep in mind when hiring someone that you have to make money to cover the cost of doing business. This includes payroll taxes and workers comp insurance. The most important is the ladder. If your assistant is hurt on the job, then you are legally responsible. Keep all this in mind as you are pricing your shows and deciding what percentage you pay your employees.
