With the crazy economic times for the past 25 years its hard to a real figure on the so called average salary, Lest take a look at Bill Gates house hold. Bill Gates and his 9 servants. Gates = 1 billion a year 9 servants = they each get paid 50,000 a year. The average salary in the Gates houshold is $100,040,000 a year. See the problem trying to get a real number.
