    I was wondering what labor runs for some other LCO's ( who have employees)? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Off the top of my head, we are at around 33-34%.

    I am between 30 and 40 percent and wanted to get an idea where we stood.

    Thanks again

    I am right around 25% right now and I expect to be at 20% in the summer (once it dries up).
     
  5. We are between 30 and 35%.......the more your revenue goes up, the more the percentage until it reaches about where we are.....my opinion of course but it is difficult to do high dollars without a high percentage of labor to revenue......

    I'm around 33% .. Depending on how large the job is it might differ.
