Basic Wages and Overtime











































In an engineering firm all workers work a basic week of 40 hours.

Any overtime work from Monday to Friday is paid for at time and a quarter.

Overtime worked on Saturday is paid at time and a half while on Sunday is paid for at double time.

If the basic wage is $14.80 per hour, find the gross wage of a man who worked 12 hours overtime from Monday to Friday, 2 hours of overtime on Saturday and 5 hours of overtime on Sunday.

Compute Gross Wages

Answer


Part I


Gross Wages = Wages Monday to Friday + Saturday Wages + Sunday Wages


 Gross Wages calculation:  Regular pay and overtime




Wages Monday to Friday = Regular 40 hour Pay + Regular Overtime Pay


Regular 40 hour Pay = $14.80/hr * 40 hrs = $592.00


Regular Overtime Pay = $14.80/hr * (time and a quarter) * 12 hrs overtime

Regular Overtime Pay = $14.80/hr * 1.25 * 12 hrs = $222.00


Gross Wages calculation:  Regular pay and overtime Monday Through Friday

Part II


Saturday Wages = Saturday Overtime Pay

Saturday Overtime Pay = $14.80/hr * (time and a half) * 2 hrs = 44.40

Saturday Overtime Pay = $14.80/hr * 1.5 * 2 hrs = 44.40


Gross Wages calculation:  Saturday overtime pay




Sunday Wages = Sunday Overtime Pay

Sunday Overtime Pay = 14.80 * (double time) * 5 hrs = 148.00

Sunday Overtime Pay = 14.80 * 2.0 * 5 hrs = 148.00


Gross Wages calculation:  Sunday overtime pay

Part III


Gross Wages = Wages Monday to Friday + Saturday Wages + Sunday Wages

Gross Wages = (592 + 222) + 44.40 + 148.00 = $1006.40


Gross Wages calculation:  Monday through Sunday





The final answer is:

Gross Wages = $1006.40

Gross Wages calculation:  Monday through Sunday – final answer
