We cover all payroll taxes, workers comp, and carry GL on all of the guys we put out in the field. When you present a customer with a bill rate on a $25 an hour guy at $35-36 an hour, they get a little nervous. Ideally we like to markup at a 1.5 multiplier, but you don't always get that. Sometimes w...

re: Break it down - your finances - JoseVargasTX
My offices bill on average $270K (two offices total billing) a week. We are not a day labor company so our hourly bill rates on the guys we put out to work are in the upper $20s to low $40s per hour. When you're running a GP of 22% on those numbers, you can see how it's a great business model....

My advice--in a small town, diner type restaurant you want to be KNOWN for one item that is the best around. Perfect that item and have it as your signature dish. Make it so good that ...

Google gulf coast western scam and that's about all you need to know about this. I know you're talking about a different company, but what they do is pretty similar.
