시간제 refers to working on an hourly basis rather than a yearly wage contract. I.e this is what part-time and casual working staff do. 

시간제로 일하면 then you receive 시급 (hourly wage) as your form of compensation. 

If however you’re working on a yearly contract then your form of compensation is 월급 (salary) - it literally means monthly pay/wage (most people in Korea who work yearly contracts receive their salaries monthly). 

보수 (wages, salary, remuneration) includes both meanings of 시급 and 월급.

   I think Alex will believe that Maggie doesn’t like VDay, but she’ll think Maggie will like what she makes for her. You know, like “ok, you don’t like VDay, but Imma cook you dinner and light some candles and put on your playlist, what’s not to like?” But she’ll be wrong :|    

This is so cute and sad and it makes me go!!!! My poor atelophobic baby gay Alex wanting to go all out and do something perfect for Maggie, and then getting disappointed when she realizes that Maggie meant exactly what she said about Valentine’s. And then Maggie “Extra-est Girlfriend To Ever Extra” Sawyer rents out an entire ballroom on her ($35k median) cop salary because that’s how much Alex means to her and if it means making Alex happy she’ll do anything 😭😭😭 

It’s a good job I got a salary increase today if I’m going to have to start paying £10 a month for a prescription

The Wage Gap

I would consider myself a feminist/feminist ally, but the wage gap is possibly the most misunderstood statistic in history. It is derived from the median earning of women divided by the number of women (including part time workers and housewives). The clear reason for the 23 cent difference is that the workforce has a larger amount of men. I’m not denying the existence of the glass ceiling for working women but this statistic is repeatedly used as if women get 77% of the salary men get for the same work, but that is not the case (and it’s illegal in most countries anyway - if you have evidence that this is happening, file a complaint/ go to court)


Wall Street made more in bonuses than the combined salary of every American on minimum wage

According to the Institute for Policy Studies, 2013 was the year the New York financial industry’s bonus pool exceeded the cumulative annual earnings of the 1 million Americans working full-time at the federal minimum wage. Wall Street’s 165,200 employees got a total of $26.7 billion in bonuses — payments made on top of their normal salary and commissions — or more than enough to double the salary of the 1,085,000 Americans working 40 hours or more at $7.25.
