A million-dollar salary in 2017 would be a nice dream job.
That’s what a new survey suggests, but the reality is that people in the US are living paycheck to paycheck.
And a million-dollars is a lot of money.
According to the report, conducted by job search firm HireVista, the median pay in the country in 2017 was $75,834.
The median annual salary in the nation was $60,051.
The highest-paid was $100,000, while the lowest was $65,000.
In the Midwest, the highest-earning was $115,000 while the bottom-paying was $54,000 in the Northeast.
The survey also found that the typical American earns $60 per hour in a year.
The average hourly wage in the United States is $7.33.
However, many people earn more than that and the average wage is still around $40 per hour.
HireVistas executive director Jim Prentice said the median salary of American workers is still significantly lower than it was in 2013.
He said it’s important for Americans to know that the average salary is not a perfect reflection of the salary of the typical worker.
For example, the survey found that many people who earn $50,000 a year earn less than $60.
And some people who work full time earn more and some work part time.
In many states, employers must give employees a raise to maintain a wage, and many companies offer incentives to encourage employees to work longer hours.
Prentice said people should look beyond the wage to see how they can work longer.
“The truth is, you don’t have to work 40 hours a week to get a decent wage,” he said.
“You can work an hour longer and earn a little more money.”
Prentice pointed out that many employers offer a bonus for a high-performing employee, and they also offer generous vacation and sick leave.
The job search company said the results are the best evidence yet that the American worker is making better money today than it did in 2012.
“We believe that the median wage in 2017 is the highest in more than 40 years, with wages for high earners at their highest in decades,” Prentice wrote in a blog post.
“We believe the average hourly earnings are the highest since 1978.
That is a strong indicator that wages have risen substantially and have not plateaued.
The middle class is seeing the biggest gains in living standards in over a century.”
