<< Breeze (my girlfriend, if you don't know already)
was rear ended yesterday in the 90s and the insurance company won't pay more
than $26/hr labor for the body work. The shop I've used before and plan to
use again(best place around) charges $28/hr. Adjuster claims that is
unusually high, and doesn't want to pay it. He will pay the $28 neverless,
since it's my car and my way. I don't think the rate is "unusually
high"......what do you all say?
Try getting your plumbing repaired for evan $28.00 @ hour !!!
Let's see... if someone is paid $14.00 an hour. Other
employment expenses for the employer, SS tax and
workmans comp stuff probably close to double it....
Heat, lights, utilites, taxes, insurance, rent and
even enviromental waste expenses these days...
Ah !!! I understand !!! The adjuster thinks the black
hearted capitalist body shop owner should pay for
the privilage of handling his business !!!
Guess what ???
I want the grunt who does the work on MY car
to be making a little more than 14.00 @ hour.
