How much do you make?

Hi,

Touchy subject, and I usually lose in this game, but how much do you make per second?

Unless my math is off (I got a 7/10 on that math quiz floating around, so I should be correct) I figure I make 0.8 cent/sec.

I calculated a day's pay before deductions, divided by hours worked, divided by 60 (mins), divided by 60 (sec)

Correct me if my math is wrong.

Since this is a somewhat touchy subject, maybe a poll would be more appropriate. The poll could then be ranges of annual amounts or per second amounts.

Right now, I'm making 0, but that's because I'm at home.

Hi,

Yeah it's touchy, but the beauty of it is that you can't really figure out how much someone makes unless you know how much time they work. So, if you have two people who make $100,000 a year and one works 30 hours a week while the other person works 70 hours a week the cent/sec result would be different. Most people who know me say I dont' work a damn, so therefore my cent/sec is higher than my lawyer friend.

I think it would be fun too, but would really prefer a poll format. Sorry, but that's just my hang-up.

Of course it may still not be fun enough for this rowdy lot, so some spice may be in order. Winner gets a $1000 prize?

You could also take into account how much vacation people get. I note this since I started getting 7 weeks per year this year.

Then there are benefits like prescription, dental, tuition, life insurance, and on and on.

But sure, money per second is pretty good too.

Either way it's variable for me.

I'm unclear what the contest is. If there were a booby prize for lowest figure from a professional, or something, I might be willing to enter

and OK, we've got a revised formula: (52 weeks in the year - number of weeks of vacation) x (number of hours per average week) x 60 x 60 = number of seconds worked (depressingly huge number)

then simply divide gross annual salary by that number. We all put our gross annual salary on our income tax, so we should be able to at least approximate it.

Is that right? If so, then maybe we can get a poll edited in here, and we might get some answers.

Oh, and please include <1c/sec on the poll for me...
