: I'm an attorney, from now on, any plumber, or any other contractor rip-off artist, will be paying double my going rate. Pissed
I'm surprised, that as a lawyer, you would even think about illegally charging a different rate based on occupation.
I suppose with that attitude, you could also charge differently for those of differnent religions and colors.
As a plumbing contractor, we use a "flat rate" book that treats everyone the same.
Every job is priced by considering all elements.
Auto repair and restaurants have been using this method for years.
The price you mentioned I would consider to be fair throughout the industry.
In some areas, it could be more, or it could be less.
If you consider it a $10 job, then in the future, do it yourself and leave the professionals alone. John
