So, I was just thinking...
So that's $36,500 for a hundred dollars a day. Imagine if Wall-Mart paid that.
Of course, being Wall-Mart, there would be a few caveats...
Most significantly, a day is 24 hrs, and people only work 8 hours, so, REALLY, it's a third of that, say, 122 days worked, which is $12,200.
Then you get a half-hour for lunch; 0.5 times 365 is 183 hours, which is about 8 days; 122 minus 8 is 118; $11,000.
In the United States, people get two days a week off, so that's 52*2, or 104 fewer days, so subtract those off, and we're at 14 days, or $1,400.
And so you can see that, with Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving, and Memorial Day off, and two weeks for vacation, a worker ought to pay their employer $400 a year.
Can you tell I've been listening to a lot of Abbot and Costello?
