Do you mean “overhead?” If so, you’re right. That’s why I got so caught up in all of this in the first place. I had an impossible time imagining where the overhead expenses go into. So when he revised the rate insofar as it resulted in a 300% increase in rate, I knew something wasn’t right from the start.
I do agree that most brick and mortar enterprises need to cover huge overhead costs: rents, utilities, etc. And indeed, those go into the overall charge of service. That’s why I don’t complain about why they’re paying me for the primary school classes (they have huge overhead costs.)
Thus, my new question: if employers have the capabilities to pay their workers a certain amount, but for whether reason they do not, is the arrangement still fair?
I look forward to your reply.
