He earns$8.25 per hour.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided number of hours worked 58 including 6 hours of midnight shift and hourly rate is $22.34. Formula used: To calculate gross pay by hourly wages: Step 1: Calculate employee’s regular gross pay for 40 or less hours of work. Regular pay=Hourly rate×Regular hours worked Step 2: Calculate employee’s overtime pay by multiplying hourly rate to overtime factor and to number of overtime hours. Overtime pay=Hourly rate×Overtime factor×Overtime hours worked Step 3. Calculate total gross pay. Total gross pay=Regular pay+Overtime pay Calculation: Total number of hours Paul Curcio’s worked is 58, he worked for 40 regular hours and 6 hours of midnight shift. So, number of hours he worked overtime is calculated as, Number of overtime hours = 58(40+6)=5846=12 First calculate Paul Curcio’s regular gross pay for 40 hours of work, consider hourly rate as$8.25 and 40 hours of regular work.

Regular pay=Hourly rate×Regular hours worked=8
