you take the amount of time associated with the job and times it by the labor rate.

for example 100 dollars per hour 1 hour in labor equals a 100 dollar bill. .5 hours is 50 and so on

thanks for using repairpal

I think that you misunderstood my question. When I look at the labor rate that is posted in the labor section, I see something like $960 - $1150 for the labor cost. For example, the cost listed of $960, what is this hourly rate ? Or the $1150, what is this hourly rate based on. $40 $50 $60 $70 per hour?? (you take the amount of time associated with the job and times it by the labor rate.) Really ?
