Alright, here's the scoop. I usually do my business by myself, but have been offered some landscaping jobs that would make life a little easier with two people. My base rate for labor is $40 per hour, if I do the work on my own. What would you guys charge for labor rate when you have two people at the work site. I am a new business and have not gained enough equity to pull the money from the business to pay for my other employee. I have talked with other companies in the area who are small like me and they normally up the labor rate to what that employee would make per hour: for instance- if I would be making $40 and the employee would be making $20 per hour, the labor rate would be $60 per hour. I just want to make sure I do the right thing and not screw over any of my customers or me lose out on any job bids. Any feedback would be great. Thanks for your help ahead of time!!!
