Laughable flat rate

Just got informed by a regional I work with that they are moving to a flat rate of $300 for the following:

The flat rate includes:
-One acre mow, edge all sidewalks within the acre, weed any flower beds, trim bushes away from the home. Sales Clean including all appliances inside and out also move the appliances and clean behind them.
Debris removal up to 20 cubic yards (a cubic yard is the size of a washer or dryer)There needs to be a light bulb in all sockets
2 Smoke detector and fresh batteries
20 wire caps
15 light bulbs

$0.50 each for switch plates or cover plates if you cap wires you need to have a cover plate on exposed wires. (like if someone took a ceiling fan and you capped the wires, I need a round cover plate on that)
$7.00 per lineal foot for handrails to be installed
2.00 slider locks
4.00 caution tape
$2.50 each for water caps on washer connections
$2.50 each for dryer vent caps
$7.00 Padlocks for garage doors or shed
$8.00 for Hasp and padlock on pool enclosure doors
HAZMATS/CHEMICALS/APPLIANCES
$2.00 each for paint
$20.00 for appliance removal
$4.00 each for car tires
$1.50 each for bicycle tires

We are requiring that you show photos of you opening the lockbox with combination, the photo of keys in the box, then photo of the keys in the door. Photo ER posting (close enough to read). Moving forward we are requiring at least 4 photos of the before and after house views (take one from the front, rear and both sides). Also bushes need to be trimmed so that nothing is touching the house and please show photos of this as well.
We now require photos of all cleaning products together in one photo including the vacuum, broom, mops and buckets. We also would like to have 30 action shots of the cleaning, debris removal and initial lawn. I would also like you to use products that we are able to identify in the photo and can see for example:
Windex type cleaner for the windows
Easy Off type oven cleaner
Scrubbing bubbles/Kaboom type foaming cleaner for the sinks, tubs, etc.
Pine Sol type cleaner for the mopping floors
Wood polish type cleaner for any wood cabinets, staircase railings, etc.
Air Fresheners with dates that we can see the date
Photo of the light bulbs in package and being installed
Photos of smoke detectors in the package with fresh batteries and their package
CO2 in their package with fresh batteries
Remember to wrap and zip tie cables or wires
Show the cover plate or switch plate covers being installed
All bathtub stickers need to be removed
Show clean mopping water and dirty mopping water in bucket
Just venting.

How is that even possible that people work for that? There is no way people are working for that amount and completing everything. Absolutely no way.

If you keep working for that rate you don't need us to tell you where the problem is.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.
