Had exactly the same thing happen for me a few years back. 5 minutes of aftercall/wrapup work at the end of each call, but got through more calls than others by being better at my job.

I was working for a UK government department.

Personally, I would certainly be offended if someone said, "You will sell this product at a price we dictate, and only take 15%. You cannot charge more to make more money; you cannot try to maximize profits through selling more by offering it for less. And if 15% of an arbitrary price we set isn't enough for you to make profit -- or even enough for you to run your business, tough." And I'd fight it as best I could.

What the hell are you referring to? The publisher *is* allowed to set the price - and so clearly they *are* able to vary their profit per unit.

Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth.
