How Much Is $10 Per Hour Annually and In Other Periods?

For many jobs, an hourly wage of $10 is quite common. But what does making $10 for every hour worked actually translate to in terms of overall income?

Here’s a full breakdown below:

Annual Income at $10/Hour

The first question is – how much would you make per year for 10 dollars an hour? To calculate this, we assume a full-time job working 40 hours per week, 52 weeks per year. That’s a total of 2,080 hours annually.

At a rate of $10/hour:
2,080 hours x $10/hour = $20,800 per year

So if you work 40 hours every week of the year making $10/hour, your annual gross income before taxes and deductions would be $20,800.

Monthly Income at $10/Hour

Most workers get paid more than just once a year though. A common pay schedule is monthly paychecks. For $10/hour, your typical gross monthly income would be:

$20,800 per year / 12 months = $1,733.33 per month

So, if you work for 10 dollars per hour, your monthly salary would be $1,733.33 before taxes.

Getting $1,733.33 on your monthly paycheck may not seem like enough for basic monthly bills and expenses for many people. According to 2023 rental data, median rent for a one-bedroom apartment is over $1,100. Add utilities, food, health insurance and other necessities, and that $1,733.33 paycheck doesn’t go far.

Budgeting and keeping expenses very lean would be crucial to get by on a $1,733 monthly income from a $10/hour full-time job. Assistance programs and cost-cutting would likely be needed as well.

Biweekly Paycheck at $10/Hour

Rather than monthly pay, many jobs pay every two weeks, known as biweekly. If you make $10/hour on a biweekly schedule, your take-home paycheck amount would be:

$10/hour x 80 hours (for the two-week period) = $800 per biweekly paycheck

So you’d get that $800 paycheck every other week or twice a month approximately.

Weekly Take-Home Pay at $10/Hour

Some jobs pay employees on a weekly basis. If you make $10/hour getting paid weekly, your take-home amount would be:

$10/hour x 40 hours = $400 per week

Therefore at $10 per week, your weekly salary would be $400 before taxes.

While getting $400 every week may seem decent, basic weekly expenses like groceries, gas and utilities can easily eat up most or all of that for a single person.

Daily “Paycheck” at $10/Hour

Finally, let’s look at your daily “paycheck” making $10/hour assuming an 8-hour workday:

$10/hour x 8 hours = $80 per day

So, at $10 you work per hour, your daily salary would be $80 before taxes.

Making $80 for a full day’s work can seem very low for all the things we need and want to spend money on daily. But many get by budgeting every $5 and $10 very carefully on just an $80 daily “wage.”

The Bottom Line on $10/Hour

As shown, making $10 per hour full-time translates to approximately:

  • $20,800 per year
  • $1,733.33 per month
  • $800 biweekly
  • $400 per week
  • $80 per day
