not sure who would have any sort of list.
What do you need it for?
Not to pry or anything, but depending on your answer, I may be able to provide a better link.

Don't bother looking at someone else's list for labor rates. Only you know what it cost's you to do business. How much do you want to make an hour? How long does it take you to do certain things? What are your expenses?

Never let anyone tell you what you should or can charge. What I charge to install VCT is exactly what I need in order to:
  • Do a quality job as per manufacturer's and industry standards.
  • Cover my expenses(supplies,gas,insurance,taxes,yadayadayada.)
  • Make an honest profit.

Nobody else knows what that number is for you. You need to sit down with your list and, after determinning exactly what you need to make per just to break even, then add in your profit.
