The best way to calculate this is to divide the total wages for

a year by the hours worked. 365 days / 7 gives us the number of

weeks in a year which comes to 52 (rounded down). If we assume the

work hours are 40 per week, 52 x 40 = 2,080 hours per year 32,000 /

2,080 = the hourly wage of 15.38.

### If you make 16 dollars an hour per week how much do you make in a year?

Simply take your hourly rate and multiply it by the number of
paid hours you have each week. Then take that figure and multiply
by 52 weeks. Easy!
= Generally, the quick formula is to take your hourly wage,
multiply it by 40 hour per week and 50 weeks per year (2 weeks for
vacation). Take your hourly wage and multiply it by 2000 (or double
it and tack on 3 zeroes). $16 * 2000 = $32000 per year. ■

### What was the hourly wage in 1938?

I am assuming that by hourly wage you mean minimum wage. In 1938
the hourly wage was $0.25 a hour, although that was implement more
towards the end of the year, I think it was set in October. That
was when minimum wage was actually set by a government act. The act
was applicable generally to employees engaged in interstate
commerce or in the production of goods for interstate commerce.
