The full sentence is

Some mechanics are now earning sixteen dollars and fifty cents an hour.

Should I let it be or change it as follows?

Some mechanics are now earning $16.50.

  • Maybe $16.50/hour?

I think "Some mechanics are now earning $16.50 an hour" would be better.


I think the full sentence works, but "$16.50/hr" would also be correct.
