WOW WOW WOW. I missed the post where he said "we bill at $30/hr" What 32 says is true then Face the facts, there is nothing you can do, $20 people have to go. Rates have to raise. where are these dudes going to get their current deal anyway? No where. They are going to go make their own businesses if I had to guess. there's NO other way around this. You need to hire a consultant. Or What you could do, is simply close shop. Start over. $30/hr in and $20 plus OT out . I dunno how you aren't already out of business.
