• It depends, the only way to truly figure it out is to know how many hours are worked in a week.....if it's 40 hours a week then you are paid roughly \$12.98 an hour if you work 40 hours a week for 52 weeks....40 hours times 52 weeks = 2080 hours, \$27,000 divided by 2080 hours = \$12.98 an hour

• 40 hour work week, it's 12.98/hr. 27k/52=x, x/40=12.98

• If it's a full time job - with paid time off - based upon 52 weeks in a year, 40 working hours per week, the hourly rate would be 12.98.

27,000 / 52 = 519.23 per week / 40 hours = 12.98 per hour

• \$12.98 an hour if you are working 40 hours a week.

• 27,000 divided by 52 (weeks) = 519.23 a week in worked 40 hours.
519.23 divided by 40 = 12.98
