Just some thoughts on pricing, something to think about.
In some of the threads people talk about quality of work & the correlation with what can be expected from industry pricing.
I think that people may be going in the wrong direction here. If this attitude exists throughout the industry then the general idea is to perform low quality work because that's what they feel they are being paid for.
How about the idea of flipping the script. I think it's possible that if the idea of quality changes as in everyone capable completes work to the higher quality it could lead to better pay structures.
Reasoning - Higher quality work should weed out those who continue performing lower quality work. With high quality work being performed demand for those performing the work will rise as there will be noticeable differences. This ultimately leads to higher industry pricing by default as the industry expectations rise as does demand for those doing this work.
By not having highest quality & expectation standards the industry gets diluted & flooded, it basically opens the door for more companies & contractors lowering demand (for average work) & increasing supply (of companies performing average work). By flipping quality expectations in time it should flip supply & demand.
