Okay so I have request to do mulch jobs from three of my customers. I would need about 60 bags of mulch for all three of them. 20 bags for each of them. 20 bags cost about 85.67. How much should I charge for labor?

Try to get mulch from a landscape supplier. Here it runs from $28 -$32 per yard (15 bags). then add 10%-15% mark up on the materials, delivery charge and the time to install the mulch.

I charge $65 per yard of mulch including installation. $35 delivery up to 5 yards per load. It takes me from 30 minutes to an hour to install 1 yard depending on where it goes.
