If economic conditions or work conditions at your employer sharply deteriorate, it may already be too late to look for another job, as increased stress and uncertainty will likely make applicants look less appealing to other employers. And it is hard to find a new job when the broader economy is in a downturn.
Hourly wage to annual salary calculator
It can be helpful for workers in Canada to calculate their annual salary from their hourly wage for budgeting purposes, filing their taxes or making a large purchase. The hourly rate to annual salary calculator can help them to figure out how much they really earn in a year.
Calculating an annual salary from an hourly rate is simple. Just insert the average number of hours worked per week, the number of weeks of vacation and number of holidays taken, and the hourly wage. The tool will convert that hourly wage into an annual salary.
Please note that the simplified formula above does not take into account overtime pay or paid vacation time. Your actual annual salary may be slightly different from this number. It can vary from job to job and province to province. Our calculator takes into consideration paid statutory holidays.

Know Your Salary Like the Back of Your Hand
Understanding your salary seems simple. You get a paycheck every couple of weeks and tax forms at the end of the year. However, filling out applications for credit or comparing your salary to others in your field can be tricky, particularly when comparing annual salary to hourly salary or trying to determine commission and benefits. If you are trying to compare how much you currently make versus a new job offer, or if your income changes from month-to-month, determining your hourly, monthly, or annual salary may be more difficult than you think.
A Quick Estimate
If you work 40 hours per week you can also quickly figure out your approximate hourly wage from your annual salary. Divide your annual salary in half and drop the thousand. If you make $60,000 a year, your hourly salary is approximately $30 an hour. $75,000 a year is about $37.50 an hour.
Different Pay Frequencies
The calculator contains options to select from a number of periods normally used to express salary amounts, but actual pay frequencies as mandated by varying countries, states, industries, and companies can differ. In the U.S., there is no federal law that mandates pay frequency, except one stating that employees must be paid in routine and predictable manners. Mandatory consistent payments give employees a lot of stability and flexibility. However, at the state level, most states have minimum pay frequency requirements except for Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina. For further details, consult state regulations regarding pay frequency.
|Daily||Pays every day, usually at the end of the day. Some short-term contractors are paid this way.|
|Weekly||Pays once each week, usually on Fridays. Relatively costly for employers with 52 weeks a year, resulting in higher payroll processing costs, which is the main reason why it is less common than Bi-Weekly or Semi-Monthly.|
|Bi-Weekly||Pays every two weeks, which comes out to 26 times a year for most years.|
|Semi-Monthly||Pays twice each month, usually on the 15th and the last day of the month. Although common, it will result in inconsistent pay dates due to differences in dates from month to month.|
|Monthly||Pays once per month. Usually the most cost-friendly option for employers. Not very common in the U.S.|
U.S. Salary Information
In the U.S., salaried employees are also often known as exempt employees, according to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This means that they are exempt from minimum wage, overtime regulations, and certain rights and protections that are normally only granted to non-exempt employees. To be considered exempt in the U.S., employees must make at least $684 per week (or $35,568 annually), receive a salary, and perform job responsibilities as defined by the FLSA. Certain jobs are specifically excluded from FLSA regulations, including many agricultural workers and truck drivers, but the majority of workers will be classified as either exempt or non-exempt.
The federal minimum wage rate is $7.25 an hour. However, states may have their own minimum wage rates that override the federal rate, as long as it is higher. For instance, the District of Columbia (DC) has the highest rate of all states at $15.00 and will use that figure for wage-earners in that jurisdiction instead of the federal rate. On the other hand, Georgia has their minimum wage rate set at $5.15, but the $7.25 federal minimum rate overrides it.
In the first quarter of 2020, the average salary of a full-time employee in the U.S. is $49,764 per year, which comes out to $957 per week. While this is an average, keep in mind that it will vary according to many different factors. The following are only generalizations and are not true for everyone, especially in regards to race, ethnicity, and gender.
- Age—A person closer to their peak income years, which is 40-55, will generally have higher salaries. Men aged 45 to 54 had the highest annual earnings at $64,740, and women earned the most between the ages of 35 and 44 at $48,984.
- Education—The higher the attained level of education of a person, the higher their salary tends to be. Workers 25 or over without a high school degree had median earnings of $31,668 compared to $39,936 for high school graduates. Workers with at least bachelor’s degrees earned $72,020 annually on average.
- Experience—In general, the further entrenched a person is in their career, the more experience or perceived ability they have, or the more valuable their skillset, the higher their salary tends to be.
- Race and Ethnicity—Black men earned a median salary of $42,796, compared to white men at $56,992. The discrepancy is less for black women compared to white women: $38,584 and $45,396. Hispanic and Asian people of both genders earned $37,544 and $63,492, respectively.
- Gender—Men earned an average salary of $55,432, and women earned $44,564. Women are generally paid less than men, and this difference is called the gender pay gap. There are many reasons that this pay gap exists, including discrimination, the specific industry, motherhood, and gender roles.
- Industry—Industry affects wages paid, even in similar roles. For instance, all else being equal, an office clerk at a public school system will most likely make a lower salary than one at a private hedge fund. This also includes the relative stability of industries and companies and their forecasted trends.
- Location—Different locations will have different supplies and demands for positions, and average salaries in each area will reflect this. Keep in mind that the cost of living should be noted when comparing salaries. In some cases, a job that offers a higher salary may equate to less overall once the cost of living of a different location is accounted for.
- Misc.—To a lesser extent, salary is also influenced by the overall performance of companies; during years of high profits, a company may choose to pay a higher than average salary for a job applicant with excellent credentials. Also, in certain jobs, workers are expected to perform job responsibilities in dangerous working conditions, such as handling dangerous chemicals in a research facility, working in an underground mine with the presence of potential toxins, or patrolling a notoriously dangerous part of town as a police officer. Such jobs can be compensated with a higher salary in the form of hazard pay. Similarly, people who work less favorable shift hours, such as the “graveyard shift,” which runs through the early hours of the morning, can sometimes earn a premium for doing so, due to the higher social and physical costs of working outside normal hours.
