A salary is a form of periodic payment from an employer to an employee, which may be specified in an employment contract. It is contrasted with piece wages, where each job, hour, or other unit is paid separately rather than on a periodic basis. A young man got people talking after sharing this on his social media platform, and others joined him under the comment section. Here is the full story

I saw my mother’s payslip some time back. I earn 5x her salary, but the good sis has got a bigger house and a bigger car than me. The math does not add up.

My mother is a hawker and never went to school or had a formal job. My brother told me that she’s had over R100k that she’s been saving and only takes interest after 5 years and reinvests it. Apparently, it’s been over 20 years and she’s never used that money except for the interest.

So there’s this concept taught as early as grade 10 called inflation.

If you are not in grade 10 yet, inflation is when the price of things goes up as the years go up. If you want a simple example of inflation, go to the grocery store.

My mom is unemployed but she still borrows me money from time to time.
