Down here, I try to get at all possible a dollar a minute, sometimes it is less and sometimes it is more.

I am using $50 per man hour. Some larger jobs I have dropped it to $40 per hour due to the large number of hours the job will take.

Can you clarify your hourly rate for me? If you say $50/manhour and you have a 2 man crew, you are basing your rates on $100/crew hour?

That's how it works, per man.

Was at 50/man hour last year, most were happy with that some felt it was high so I dropped it for $48/per man. All my contracts have a miniumum of 2 men per job. In my opinion people feel a little better about hearing 48 then 50 or 96 compared to 100 an hour...
