I had a ton of responses for these such questions....was interest in what you guys said in the past. lol....One of my responses has been ...well sir thats the going rate, and last I checked I was in biz to make money!! Another was....hmmmm okkkkk how about $50 for me seeing Im 35 and have a Hort degree...and for the 24 yr old....lets say $30!...hmmmmmmmmmm ok thats still $40 per hr Or better yet!!....how about all seniors, because they are older, they must be worth more, Ill bet they can lift real heavy things, and work alllllll day in the 90 degree weather. Bottom line......its pisses me off when someone thinks they can tell you how to run a biz. I wonder if these folks know that kids coming outta vocational schools are the ones working for GM and Ford....their rates are charged out at $65 per hr. for mechanical work, the list goes on and on plumbers$60 per hr, Carpenters, Electricians etc etc....funny thing is we show up with more money invested in equipment then anyother trades, our machines have a quicker turnover rate than most trades blows my mind! Any responses?...love too hear, because Im going toprint it out and just hand it to people that start in on the young ones.
