>From what I've heard, a $75,000/year salary typically translates into
$150,000/year in costs to the employer (assuming a full-time employee).
Things like vacation time, sick time, health insurance premiums, life
insurance premiums, disability insurance premiums, un/employment insurance,
training expenses, company lunches, company office parties, bonuses, stock
options, and office overhead (desk, chair, computer, pens, reference
material, lights, electricity) contribute to the actual cost of the
employee, in addition to the salary being paid to said employee.

So double yer numbers dude. ;^)

Unless you're talking about writers who get paid $37,500. or so annually.
