How Much Should I Pay A Foreman?

New at this, I need to hire a guy to be the leader of my small landscaping team. The most qualified person I could find isn't the most experienced but he does good work and is good at leading. I'm thinking $25/hr. Oakland, CA area. Any suggestions?

Isn't $50K/yr poverty in CA?
