How do I figure out my hourly wage from my salary?

To calculate your hourly wage from your salary, follow these steps:

  1. Find out your annual salary.

  2. Establish your weekly work hours.

  3. Use the hourly wage to salary formula:

    hourly wage = annual salary / ( weekly hours × 52)

For instance, let's consider an example where your annual salary is $60,320, and you work 40 hours per week:

hourly wage = 60,320 $/yr / ( 40 h/wk × 52 wk/yr)

hourly wage = $29 per hour

What's the difference between a wage and a salary?

A wage is usually based on an hourly rate, and the total amount you get paid varies with the total hours worked, including overtime. It is commonly associated with part-time or hourly jobs.

In contrast, a salary is a fixed amount paid regularly (monthly or biweekly), regardless of the hours worked. Salaried positions are often full-time, with fixed schedules. Overtime compensation for salaried employees depends on internal company regulations.

  1. Enter your Hourly wage.
