then they want to pay a tech flat rate, and bill the customer alot more!
then they want to pay the tech less,
fly by night mom and pop shops!
see you are one of the problems with this idea
you dont have an open mind
i am not a fly by night shop and neither are lots of other smal companies here
the long and short is (again lets use nice round numbers)
lets say you make 40,000 a year and you work 2000 hours @ $20 an hour what woud be wrong with making the same 40k and only working maybe 1700 hrs?
and i am not talking about taking a $20 an hour guy and paying him $20 an hour flat rate i am talking about taking a $20 an hour guy and paying him closer to $30 an hout flat rate (again just round numbers)
now i did work for a guy that only paid on billable hours and i didnt stay because the rate was the same i could make anywhere else so i know that doesnt work what i am talking about is making it so that a good tech would never wat to leave because it sucks to train someone to have them jump ship
