I spent my time on New Years Day to figure my rate per man hour. This has been discussed at length here, and I am curious. It seems that if you dont say you make the magical, dollar a minute, people say you are undercharging, or working for free. It seems to me that this would vary on cost of living, and what the market would bear. I think that pricing confuses those that are new in the business. For instance, I run one crew, 3 people (including me), and two in the winter, (including me). The hourly rate this year was $36.03 per man hour. Not billable hours, not per crew not............, just good old man hours. Now if I were to say i dont do anything for less than $60 per hour, I would probably make next to nothing. I have stated before, that cost of living plays a part in what you make, someone making $100,000 may live better than someone making $125,000. Depends on the market. If I could get $60 per man hour here, I could buy a house for $140,000, and pay cash.......every year. So, making $36.03 per man hour, am i charging enough? or too much, or just right?
