If you earn $100,000 per year, you lose $400/day for each day you’re out of work. Here’s the math: $100,000/50 weeks=$2,000/week. $2,000/week divided by 5 days=$400/day.

That’s $50 per hour.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over the last 2 years the average length of time that people are out of work is about 20 weeks (5 months).
