Wages, Salaries, and Such

How much are you really making with that paycheck? Kids find out what minimum wage means and what they'll make given a specific hourly wage. They use their hourly rate of pay to determine how much money they'd make in a day, week, and year. They compare what a minimum wage worker makes to the state's average income, and discuss the relationship between learning and earning.
