What would you like to do?
Are you talking with fringe benefits or just the hourly wage or what the LMP charges to cover over head and profit? with fringe benefits

"Reasonable" is in the eye of the beholder. Business's are competitive, and as long as it's not the only game in town, you can bet that it's charging the maximum the mar…ket will support, and the minimum that it can afford and stay 'healthy'. I've seen the price vary anywhere from $60.00/hr to twice that, depending on many factors too numerous and convoluted to list here. Instead of being concerned with price, what you should be looking at is: How long has the company been serving the community you live in? Are they adequately licensed/bonded/insured? What's their rating with the BBB? Are they available for warranty or emergency issues on weekends and after-hours? Do you have any friends who've had work done by them, and what is THEIR opinion of the company? Armed with that information, call around to a few local plumbers and see what they're charging, then go with a middle to higher-charging outfit. They're less likely to come up with 'surprise' charges than a low-baller, and usually have more experienced personel.
A skilled journeyman I normally start off @$50 per billable hr
Depending on skill level and what type of "plumbing" they do the minimum a Master plumber with the proper formal education should average $150 - $350 per hr NOT including mate…rials. This is for one man, many plumbing shops have one master plumber pay their employees disgracefully low wages and bill out over $125 per hr and call their employees "techs" to beat licensing laws as they know the employees sent to the jobs are not really qualified to be called Plumbers as they never had any formal training or passed any type of journeymen tests Of course in certain localities the market is going to be a lot lower but so are the skill levels and licensing laws are quite lax in many places
I pay my Journneymen $65.00 per billable hr the better mechanics I pay more
