Sounds like the two of them went out for a few beers and quite literally formed an illegal price fixing conspiracy.
Usually, whether it is doctors, plumbers, or painters, the guys who have more experience and a wider reputation charge more per hour, and the new guys charge less. Partly to attract business and partly because they know they're just not as good at it. Yet.
They both work for the marina where I keep my boat. It just occurred to me that there is no way these two guys are paid the same by the marina, but they only bill us captives one standard rate.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
