Hi, all.

For reasons too obscure to mention, a client wants my
low-markup payroll agency to charge them a "standard"

For reasons even more obscure, this is actually
relevant to me. (I say this so that those who would
normally respond, as I would, with "the agency markup
is irrelevant to you" will understand that this
doesn't apply in this case.)

So, what is the range of "standard" markups for an
agency these days?
