Working an average of 38 hours per week, $2,600 equates to $15.78 per hour. This does not take into account any additional entitlements such as vacation days, training days, illness or breaks, which increase the average hourly rate for those earning $2,600 a month.
Those working part time contracts of 16 hours per week would earn an hourly rate of $37.50 per hour on this amount. However, tax will need to be deducted from the gross amount earned, reducing the effective hourly rate depending on individual tax circumstances.
A salary of $2,600 is paid regardless of the number of hours worked, and the difference between contracted hours and actual hours worked can erode net hourly rates.
