# What Hourly Rate Is 100K

Assuming you are asking what hourly rate would equate to an annual salary of \$100000 the answer is \$48.08 per hour.

To put that in perspective the federal minimum wage is \$7.25 per hour. So if you worked 40 hours per week at minimum wage you would earn \$290 per week or \$15080 per year. In contrast someone earning \$100000 per year would earn roughly \$5000 per week or \$250 per hour.

In other words if you were paid minimum wage for 40 hours of work it would take you approximately 650 hours of work to earn what someone else could earn in one hour at \$100000 per year.

Of course these are rough estimates and do not take into account taxes or other deductions from one’s salary. Nevertheless they provide a helpful perspective on how much more someone earning \$100000 per year make compared to someone on minimum wage.
