Today Pete S paid his home theater guy and his helper $175 per hr plus materials to install a new satellite dish and receiver. I don't have a problem with getting this type of scratch embedding the labor cost into a new install. But I am doubtful that anyone on LI would pay pete S and his helper $175 per hr plus materials to either service or repair an existing lighting system. I can't help but believe that it has to do with the perception of people that if you work outside with your hands in the landscape your not a tech your a grass monkey and should be paid as such. Interior to exterior a big difference in compensation.
