I'm guessing that the prime may be getting the $80-$100 per head and
they'll expect the sub to accept somewhat less. If they're absorbing all
liabilities then you have some room to play and still come out ahead.

Depending on the length of the contract, don't forget to include O/T,
holiday premiums, away-from-home premiums, etc., in your calculations
... all those things that you forget about when you're working more
