Not really gonna get a straight answer on this question----- its different in regions, and each job has variables ,, so anywhere from .12 to .95 labor depending on job and region. Good luck!!!!!!!

Dude just figure out what the going rate in your area is. Call your competition maybe they will help you.

I honestly think opening a business in today's economy is crazy.
