Sorry, but I don't have leverage. The HSP here and Directv would rather see me quit than pay me more money. The fact is, installers make the same no matter were they live and it's been that way for a very long time. Directv has paid the same to the HSP's almost since it started. As for the three hour thing? If you don't believe me, bug off. There are more techs farther away that will eventually take up the slack but those customers are put on long waiting lists.
