    M/H rate is man hour rate. U set a rate per hour & that's what u charge per man hour. If u pay help $10hr u don't use that rate in ur estimate. Say ur M/H rate is $50 & u estimate a job is gonna take 16 hrs u charge 16hrs X $50=$800. U can do it urself in 2 days or u & 1 helper at $10hr do it in one 8hr day. Your help makes $80 for the day & u make $720 ($90/hour) cuz u have the expenses of running a company
