The Savings Proposition
Let’s estimate that on average a farm worker will talk to his boss and other experts for 5 hours per week. We estimate that there are 200,000 farm worker in Australia at the moment. This means there could be about 1 Million hours per week spent on this activity or 52 Million hours per year.
If we use an arbitrary figure of $25 per hour as wages then the total wages cost for Australia is a staggering $1.3 Billion per year.
If we consider that same workforce had eHat for the communications, a saving of $650 Million is made per year due to the 50% less time it takes to communicate a situation.
That’s a saving of 26 Million hours per year or 2.5 hours per worker per week.
