$100/hr we have done on some jobs but to keep steady work it’s difficult in a competitive market. For 1 person maybe a 2 person crew it could be done if you find someone good and pay them 75k/yr

This was you back in January.
So in only 3 months you've gone from "pitiful and pathetic" to big successful business man?
Wow and you say other's have insecurities. ;)
Yet another miraculous rags to riches success story like ole Mr. 35DollarLawns.

(Who by the way, met the same fate as CITY PARK CON.)

What's with this 'boomer' talk? I see more and more people use this reference. Someone thought your prices are high, and maybe they are, and you're going to make a post to insult their entire generation on the internet? Why not use that energy to sell your services to someone else?

Sometimes people need to call around and get different quotes to realize your prices are fair or, alternatively, outrageous...
Sometimes people need to hire the cheaper guy, then realize “I should have had a v8!”

Not sure. Still makes the outrageous posts and gets called out.
Did it ever occur to you
That maybe the guy DOES have a fleet of ford rangers?

when I worked for trugreen in a different millennium, we had quite a few rangers that did crazy things
I had them with snow plows and sanders in them
I even had a few with dually conversion (I’m not sure why but I saw them)
There was also a good number of Toyota duallys started life as a uhaul or an rv and became landscape trucks
They were awesome
So easy to work out
I’m almost 6 and a half feet tall and I swear the next time I get a new ford I’ll need a step ladder to get something out of the back bed!

No way I could do $100 an hour after paying labor. That's what I bill for after materials gas and what not. That way when I do hire some schmuck for $25 an hour who works half as fast as I do, I can still bank $50 an hour or 100k a year per idiot.

Nobody’s scaling anything in my area in this labour market. Applications dried up completely and $25/hr cad not enough to get someone.

got my hands on pricing from one of the big construction companies in my area, $74 for general labour, $85 carpentry and $105 for manager time

So a general labor earns $153,000 yearly in Canada? What is they're take home pay after socialist taxation $55,000?

Bill out rates
Was posted by angry customer on google review. They decided to make their hourly rates public. I post mine on my website, but people don’t like the rates to be known
Well you made it sound like that was general labor wage. And besides that.
So an angry customer is who you trust to base bill out rates?
Angry customer hasn't a clue, only clocked them on how long on their property, and doesn't realize the may also had to make a run to landfill for disposal, plus fuel, insurance equipment.
All angry Karen seen is they were there 10 hrs and charged me $750.
