The REAL labor rate
This was inspired by a recent post on iATN.
What would your labor rate be if there were NO profit in parts; stop the silly discussions on parts profit??? Eliminate the arguement with customers that they can get parts cheaper from their cousin. Either sell quality parts (at cost) that have a manufacturers warranty, or install customer supplied parts with no warranty; the labor would pay all the bills in this scenerio.
Lets keep this discussion in per-centages as the anti-trust laws may get us and the moderator in trouble if we talk $$$$.
I find this an interesting concept, I think by a technician who wants to see higher labor rates.
What do you think?
