Plot Synopsis

For more than 30 years, "Parade" magazine has published an annual feature, What People Earn, in which everyday people reveal the most intimate detail about their careers: their salary. This year, WHAT PEOPLE EARN is a television program that expands the magazine feature, highlighting behind-the-scenes footage of "Parade" Editor-in-Chief Maggie Murphy and her staff assembling the annual article, asking people on the street what they earn, visiting workplaces to explore how Americans work, and revealing incredible facts about American salaries past and present. In each 30-minute episode, this program visits people at three different workplaces, including: a small business owner who turned his leather football-making hobby into a growing small business; factory workers with a long history of manufacturing combat knives for the Marines; the expert beer brewers at Samuel Adams; the people who make iconic Stetson cowboy hats; woodworkers who create baseball bats for Major League Baseball; and a man whose high-stakes job is to keep a nuclear facility in Connecticut safe from terrorist attacks. H2 aired back-to-back episodes on Sunday, March 10, 2013 at 10pm ET, but had no additional episodes scheduled at that time. Plus, on the same day the program premiered on H2, "Parade" magazine published its annual survey for 2013, which included celebrities like Justin Bieber ($55 million), Mark Harmon ($38 million), Brad Pitt ($35.5 million), gymnast Gabrielle Douglas ($10.25 million), Honey Boo Boo ($50,000), and a few more stars like Blake Shelton and LeBron James.
