Salary Science: What are the Magic Numbers?

Americans talk about religion, politics, and our personal lives, but, as we learned this week, we don’t like to talk about money. Especially when it comes to our salaries. So we’re putting it all on the table with this infographic. Everything you’ve ever wanted to ask about pay: Who makes what? Does money buy you happiness or does it really come with more problems? And most importantly, will you get a raise in 2012?

(You’ll also learn a couple things you’ve probably never thought of to ask, like how a person’s weight and height affect his or her salary. Really?)
