What is the average salary per player of a Harlem globetrotter

Kurt Schneider, CEO of Phoenix based Harlem Globetrotters, previously declined to disclose the privately held team's annual revenue or profit, but the numbers for fiscal year 2013, according to Forbes, made him really feel good: revenue of $40 million, up 12% from 2012 and 30% from 2008.

While actual salaries are not known, the 25 players can make a six-figure salary, as what figures listed at Career Bliss suggest: Harlem Globetrotters employees earn $73,000 annually on average, or $35 per hour, which is 20% higher than the national salary average of $60,000 per year.
