    the biggest plumbing company in our mid-size city has perhaps 50 plumbers working for it.  My calcs indicate that if those guys work 10 hours a day for 5 days a week pulling down gross receipts of $90/hr, the company takes in about $1 million per year.  

    Putting them under SBA rules, in the Construction category, they could be SEVENTEEN TIMES bigger and still be a small business.   Perhaps no behemoth in terms of multinational conglomerates, but still enormous in the context of the competition.  

    To me they are a small business now, but only just.  Double in size and they wouldn't be.
