What is gross pay ?
Whether you are paid a salary, a wage, or any other manner, your income is the amount of money you receive for the work you do.
This income is usually paid weekly, biweekly (every two weeks), semi-monthly (twice a month), monthly, but not usually annually (once a year).
The amount of money you make before any deductions is called your gross pay.
