Being bored in a long meeting last week I took out my notebook and started an interesting experiment. How much was I really being paid by hour?
At first this seemed like an easy undertaking: everyday I would reach the office at 8:30am and work until 6:30pm. 10 hours per day = 50 hours a week. Certainly dividing my salary by this 50 hours would yield my hourly pay? Man, was I wrong!
