Sunita is paid $36 per hour and works 9 hours per day. She receives one paid day off for each 18 days that she works. What is her true hourly wage?
Well....we'll say she works 18 days and then gets a paid day off....
She works 9 x 18 = 162 hours
She gets paid for 171 hours (because of the day off) 171 hr x $36/hr / 162 hr = $38.00/hr
