At that point, the business owner needs to make a decision to either fold or figure out a way to do business cheaper to survive.
That was my point about our business not being viable in every neighborhood. Just because some one wants to pay or can only afford to pay a certain amount of money, doesn't mean we business owners are obligated to work for that price.
It's like drugs and sex. Just say NO!
