From April to December 2004, the business has more customers and becomes busier, thus new staff (a worker and a driver) are employed.

The business prefers to hire extra part-time workers and drivers sharing the total needed working hours. In case one of them becomes sick or busy, other staff can replace them; therefore, the working process will not be effected.
