  • Sounds like the going rate in my area (north Ga).

  • I personally think that's way less than they should be paying. 40 hours a week? I'd say they need to be paying around $250. Then again, I don't know the going rates.

  • You could look at and see what people charge/pay in your area. Use the pulldowns and search by zipcode.
