Needs according to Maslow’s theory is classified into five, embedded in a pyramid.
1) Physiological needs at the lowest levels of the pyramid which includes needs that are important for the survival of an individual like food, clothing and shelter. i.e. need of money is the basic need of an individual necessary for the survival of an individual.
2) Once the basic needs are fulfilled then comes the secondary needs and among secondary needs tops the chart is safety needs. Eg. An individual looking out for a safe working environment wanting to stabilise in his job.

Average salaries for workers range from $8 to $12 per hour (entry level) depending on the job title. The legal minimum salary is around $7 per hour in most states. The end result, however, is that the U.S. economy has become the largest on earth, with most of its citizens enjoying comparatively high living standards.
