Hey I am a Landscaper, it is a way of life for us. People are always trying to get you to cut prices. I usually respond with a lower price, and SHOW them the differents in materials and the short cuts that I would have to take to give the price. then I tell them I would not do the job that way.
As a TA you can redo a price for them putting them in a 1a cabin. then see if they want to down grade.
I would not expect my TA to reduce her pay for me, or anyone.
