5
-Make a copy of this google document or download a copy (under the File menu).

-Adjust each “week” type with the cell’s drop-down menu.

-Fill in the following bits of information: “Hourly Rate” and “Total Compensation (per contract)". (Everything in the calculator will reference this; you can change it as many times as you want/need to figure out your time.)

-Your “hourly rate” is what you want it to be. OBADAG recommends starting at $25/hour, but by law in NYC it cannot be below $15/hour.

-Fill in the “total hours” you worked each week. The calculator does the rest.
