    1) How much has your labor rate changed over the past year?

    2) How much do you expect your labor rate to change over the next year?

    We adjust our labor rate every 6 months at a min. % eqaul to CPI for our area . Which this year is 4.1 % in June and in January. Then we check our labor cost and profitabliity from there to see if that is correct.

    I’d guess we raised the rates about 5 donuts in the last year and will probably raise them again another 5 donuts by January I suspect.

    My labor rate went up $5/hr for transmission, and $15/hr for general auto.  I remain one of the most expensive shops in town, and ye am still here in business 10+ years after buying a business.
