Making 50 “dol’s” an hour

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Do you want to make $50 an hour? If so, this article has all the information you need. The average American makes about $22 per hour which is less than half of what many people are capable of earning. With a little bit of hard work and creativity, it’s possible to earn much more than that amount in just one hour. For example, in 2015, the top 10% made over $100 per hour while the bottom 10% earned under $5 per hour. What does this mean for your paycheck? It means that if you work really hard and put in some extra effort each day, there’s no reason why you can’t make at least 50x as much money.

The average American hourly wage

The average American makes $22 per hour, which is less than the median amount of $32. Many people are capable of making much more than this per hour, which means that it’s possible to make at least 50 times as much in just one hour with hard work and creativity.

Which jobs are most paid in America

The most highly-paid jobs in America are typically those that require a high level of specialization and experience. For example, surgeons, dentists, and chief executives typically make more than $100 per hour. In contrast, jobs that require little training and little experience, such as food servers and cashiers, typically pay less than $10 per hour.

$50 an hour is how much a year

If you make $50 per hour, your Yearly salary would be $98,800. This result is obtained by multiplying your base salary by the number of hours, week, and months you work in a year, assuming you work 38 hours a week.

50 dollars per hour working 2,000 hours

As a simple baseline calculation, let’s say you take 2 weeks off each year as unpaid vacation time. Then you would be working 50 weeks of the year, and if you work a typical 40 hours a week, you have a total of 2,000 hours of work each year. In this case, you can quickly compute the annual salary by multiplying the hourly wage by 2000. Your hourly pay of 50 dollars is then equivalent to an average annual income of $100,000 per year.

What if you get 2 weeks of paid vacation, or you take no vacation time

Now let’s consider the case where you get paid 50 dollars an hour, but you get an additional 2 weeks of paid vacation. You get the same result if you work all year with no vacation time. In the previous case, we assumed 2 weeks of unpaid vacation, so your total year consisted of 50 weeks. But if you get paid for 2 extra weeks of vacation (at your regular hourly rate), or you actually work for those 2 extra weeks, then your total year now consists of 52 weeks. Assuming 40 hours a week, that equals 2,080 hours in a year. Your hourly wage of 50 dollars would end up being about $104,000 per year in salary.


If you want to make more money, it’s possible. But the key is that you need to work hard and be creative in order to take advantage of all your options. You can start by considering how much others are earning per hour and what jobs pay the most (and least) for a given amount of experience required. Then think about whether or not there might be ways for you to earn some extra income on top of your current salary while still doing something enjoyable.
