Nein, die Antwort ist nicht SpongeBob Schwammkopf! Movoto haben das mal ausgerechnet. Außerdem haben sie ausgerechnet, was SpongeBob so im Jahr verdient:
„SpongeBob is a fry cook at the Krusty Krab. If you’ve watched the show, you’ll know the Krusty Krab’s proprietor is filled with avarice. He’s cheap, cheap, cheap! You’ll also know he pays SpongeBob in cash. I took this to mean that he’s paying SpongeBob under the table, and probably below minimum wage.
I didn’t think the Marshall Islands would have a minimum wage, but I looked anyway. Unsurprisingly, the Islands do not. So I made a compromise: I decided to base Bikini Bottom’s minimum wage on Seattle, Washington’s minimum wage; that is $9.19 an hour, almost $2 more than the federal minimum wage, which is just $7.25.
But because SpongeBob is paid under the table, I assumed he was making just $6 an hour.
Working 40 hours a week at $6 an hour will get you an abysmal $240 a week or $12,480 a year (52 weeks a year with no vacation time).“
