Hanging on to a stable job with a stable florist is actually easier than getting the job in the first place. Job security, or the stability of the florist business employer, is more of a concern. What this means is that hanging on should be no problem as long as there is something to hang on to. The florist business can be unstable for some. Otherwise, the hard part, like in all horticultural industries - heck, like in almost any industry - is getting through the first few years with low pay. Anyone who can hang on through that should have no problem hanging on when the pay rate increases. As long as they don’t do anything crazy like get married or start a family. The work is enjoyable enough to limit turnover. There really are not many reasons to leave this job. A rash of evil, killer plants (flowers) is one such reason, but it isn’t a very prevalent one.
