Most of the educated people today are either self-employed or salaried. While self-employed professionals get their income from their own business or work and have no employer, salaried professionals get a fixed salary every month on a fixed day from their employer in the form of bank transfer, cheque or other means.  It is strange that although we all receive it and value it dearly to meet our expenses, the meaning of the word’salary’ is largely unknown to all. The word ‘salary’ has its origin in the Latin word ‘salarium’ that means an allowance to purchase salt in the Roman Empire. However, while many experts agree about its derivation from the Latin word, its connection with salt is highly debatable. So let us leave it, and have our focus on salary slip which is provided by the employer at the time of presenting the salary.
