I just think there are a lot of people out there who have no idea how much money we make for a typical job, and therefore don't know what's reasonable. They may have worked hourly jobs in the past and have calibrated their hourly rates to those going rates rather than doing any kind of market research. $20/hr would be pretty good for a journeyman carpenter in some areas I've lived.
