There was a very interesting summation of block workloads provided on the Histonet back in '99.  I thought it was an excellent reference.  Not only did it give a general figure, but a breakdown of differing expectations, based on what was being cut.  Here is the link to that archived article:
For my labs, I generally use 30 per hour, for up to 2 slides per block from mixed tissues, large and small.
I hope this helps.

 I was wondering of anyone that is willing to share wage information for
the southwest region of the USA.  Currently we are trying to build a
case, so that we can go to management for increases.  The infomormation
that we have from ASCP, helps, but they are wanting more.  I have gone
online and looked at job postings and it seems the starting salary
ranges from $23.00 to 26.00.  Also is there any articles out there that
pertain to how many blocks a tech should cut??
