That's what it was for me in 1984.
40 hours a day?
that would equal 10,400 hours a year if this person only worked 5 days a week. At ten bucks and hour that person would gross $104,000 per year.

They can’t get paid because most payroll software balks at “40 hours a day”.
The Russians and the Chinese and the Iranians must be laughing their asses off at us. Any electorate dumb enough to put such people in office most be ripe for the taking. Thank God for President Trump.

She should at least be able to compute $10 per hour, 40 hours per week for 50 weeks. 10 X 40 X 50 = $20,000. Perhaps she was allowed to use a calculator starting in first grade and thus has no common sense about numbers. People like this vote on laws that can send us to jail if not followed. Yikes!
