The labour charges are high as a reflection of property values, since the franchise can make a packet selling up (or they could up to last year) they need high labour rates to make enough money to justify not selling out - or to pay the rent whichever it is. Of course now property prices are falling this pressure is reduced. That combined with worse off punters more inclined to hunt down a bargain should see downward pressure on labour rates, or at least less pressure to increase them, and a few staff let go...
