Thats how much I paid this week when a toilet broke in my hotel and had to call a local plumber over. And he was a new guy, so it wasn’t like I was getting special pricing or anything.
I happened to be hanging out with a business professor from Penn State University at the time.
I told him.. “I didn’t go to business school or anything, but that sounds like good business to me.”
He said, ” In the States plumbers charge $50 an hour.”
I responded, “In a 19 room hotel do you have any idea how many sinks, toilets and doors break on a daily basis?”
So for me, right now, that’s why Ecuador wins.
