Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Salaried pay. Salaried employees make more per week than hourly employees. Step-by-step explanation:A salaried employee makes $67,000 per year. To know which option is better, we need to calculate how much hourly employees make in year. An hourly employee needs to work 44 hours a week (0+10+8+8+7+6.5+4.5 = 40). So the first 40 hours will be paid 25$ per hour and the next 4 will be paid $37.50 per hour. So an hourly employee will make $1150 a week (40*$25 + 4*$37.50 = $1150).Considering that a month has 4 weeks, and a year has 12 months, an hourly employee will make $55,200 a year ($1150*4*12=$55,200).An hourly employee makes $55,200 a year, while a salaried employee makes $67,000. So I would recommend the option c) to a new employee.
