How much is a landlord able to charge per hour for labor?

Question Details:

My landlord is charging us $20/hour to make necessary repairs to the apartment that we vacated after living there for 3 years. I know they made the repairs themselves and didn't hire an outside source. Also, I feel that they have embellished on the amount of time actually spent doing the repairs in the home. What are my options?
