Salary is the amount of money you earn after a weekly/monthly basis. (An annual sum) These are relatable since in College or University so usually when you get your first real job, not a summer job (possibly), but a day to day job you must balance with school, to pay for rent, bills, transportation, and food. Some don’t work till after, while some start working in High-school straight through to University.
