Hi all,

I was wondering how much the markup for prevailing wage is when you bid on public works for labor only. For example if the prevailing wage for an electrician wire man is $75/hr by how much do you guys mark it up after all expenses like workman comp insurance and all the other stuff.

Thanks

Josh

Whatever the market will bear,
pay the electrician,
keep the rest.
