If I work 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off, how much will I earn? My brother will be earning 1400 every shift, so would my brother earn $1,400 per shift x 5 days per week x 26 weeks per year =$182,000?

\$1,400 per shift x 5 days per week x 26 weeks per year = \$182,000?
\$1400 per shift? Really? HOI What do you mean by a "shift"? I would normally interpret a "shift" to be a standard 8 hour day but \$1400 seems a bit much for 8 hours! (\$175 an hour!) If a "shift" is the "four weeks on" then that would be 4(7)(8)= 224 hours. \$1400/224= \\$6.25 per hour, a bit more reasonable.
