I will say it does seem to be worse the past 5 years or so.

Yes, the nationals and others are just as guilty as solo guys who don't know their costs and don't care.

This is a result of turning services into a commodity. Or the Walmartization of the service industry.

You won't stop it. There is no way to stop it.
It's not just our industry being run by bankers interested only in the bottom line. One I can think of is Oldcastle Materials, around here if you compete too hard against them they either buy you out or drive you out of business. Much like the larger LCO's do.
