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....

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.

re: 4Runner suggestions (buy/lease/etc.) - JoseVargasTX

He said those two vehicles are notorious for ending up in the hole at the end of the lease. I got 2.49% on my sequoia, n...
