Re: contract-to-hire pricing
Roughly calculated, $40 per hour on a W2 (as a contractor with no benefits)
is about $80K in gross pay per year. That's 2000 work hours and allowing for
two weeks (80 hours) of vacation or sick time off. If you're looking for an
equivalent salary with benefits, I would guess that $60-70K would be in the
ballpark. What you don't get in cash every week, you get in paid time off,
maybe life insurance, and maybe 401K matching funds or profit sharing. All
of that factors in, so it may look like you're earning less money, but it's
actually about the same in the long run.
