How much does employee cost?

1) With taxes and work comp, how much does a 15 dollar/hr man cost per hour?

2) What amount would you add to that cost for administration - per man?
With-holdings, paperwork, and management - how much admin cost would you add for a middle of the road (semi-reliable) man?

3) How do you figure a reasonable amount profit per 15 dollar (adjusted) man?

I just hear, "charge 40 per hour and you'll be fine". But its hard to track the costs and know what I would profit without knowing what it actually costs.

Thanks. I apply what I learn from this site on a daily basis, you guys are great.
