Cooling Down Windshield

From someone who is currently working for a subsidiary of Harmon..., I am curious as to their rates. We are currently receiving $43 per repair. I wonder if the rates are different for "repair only technicians".

This is a continuation of another thread on network questions that will veer off the main subject, so I thought it warranted it's own heading. There may be other posts along this line, but alas...I didn't have the time to look. Maybe some will find it useful. The subject came about on how some may u...
