The standard for calculating an hourly rate from an annual rate (as a
payroll department would calculate it, and which I think was already
mentioned in this chain) is

(Annual rate) divided by 2080 = hourly rate

So... $68,000 per year would equal $32.6923 per hour.

I think the division factor of 1,000 was to figure what your take-home
(spendable) income would be if you were contracting. At least, that's
how I interpreted it.


Whoa, the numbers don't jive. $68/hour or $68,000 per year, which is it?

$68.00/hour is equivalent to financial compensation of $136,000/year.
