We only want a junior

When I was an AE I worked on a pretty simple job where we were updating an existing TVC with new end frames and VO. A year later the same brief from the same client landed on my desk. I shared the updated cost estimate and immediately proceeded to get berated over the phone because the cost had increased by a few hundred dollars from last time. I calmly explained the only change in cost was the producer fee as our producer had been promoted from a junior to mid-level in that time. She demanded we had a junior producer work on our job to bring the cost down or she’d report me to my boss. We had to lower the fee even though there were no junior producers at our agency anymore…
