If Average Hourly Pay In US Is Above $10, Why Is It Many Americans Spend Hours On Meager Adsense?
I earn around $150-200 per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year from Adsense.
Do the math!
Then again a) I ain't American and b) the average wage is probably closer to $20 p/hr
First, AdSense is not always so "meager" for some people.
Second, $10 an hour in the US is pretty low, when it comes to owning or renting a home, paying utility bills, owning a car, paying for gas, paying for things like car insurance, etc. etc.
$10 a hour at 40 hours a week is $400. The government takes a good chunk out of that. I'm guessing that the person who makes $400 may only get to keep about (again, guessing) maybe $330? That would amount to less than $1650 "take-home" pay a month.
A one-bedroom apartment in a not-so-great neighborhood (in Massachusetts anyway) can run around $1000 a month. That leaves the remaining $660 to cover everything else, including food, clothes, other necessities, child care (for some), etc. etc.
Besides the above, if someone can pick up a few hundred dollars a month with something like AdSense - who wouldn't want to? These days people are looking for back-ups to their main income, because a lot of people are worried about being laid off or having their pays cut.
I make $11 an hour as a CNA and anyway i can make a few extra bucks i am willing to try!!

Do you track both your income from writing and how much time you put into it? If you do, do you have a minimum hourly rate that you target?

Why do so many Americans hate America? And if they hate it so much why don't they just leave?One thing that really bothers me is the way some Americans seem to hate everything about America. I'd just like to ask them: "If you hate everything about the country you live in then why are you...

How much time do you spend working on your computer doing hubpages related activities? I find I am spending most of my waking hours doing some type of adsense-hubpages task. Is that normal?
