    What do most of you calculate for labor burden?

    I have 11% for comp ( ouch ) then I have my GL which is close to 4%. SUTA and FUTA is close to 3%. Then my payroll taxes at close to 9%.

    So right there I have about 27%.

    I put my agent on notice that I need to get these down some and she is going to shop some for me. My second year will be in June. I don't think I will see much of a break until the 3rd year.

    Your workers comp is way out. Here in ohio, workers comp is expensive. You have to join an organization, (Cose, for example) to see a dramatic savings. They saved me 90% from what I was paying. Do some research in your state.
