How long your boss will pay you the salary in your Country?

Sometimes we will talk about "the yearly salary",but most of the time in Taiwan we just talk about salary with a month when we interview a job (of course will have some Year-end bonuses.)

I know in NZ not like Taiwan,they always talk about the yearly salary when they interview a job, and will pay the salary weekly,it's so different from Taiwan!

How about your Country?

In the US, for white-collar jobs, they usually talk about yearly salary and we get paid every two weeks (or twice a month, usually on the 15th and the 30th/31st). Some office workers are eligible for overtime and sometimes their salary is discussed in hourly terms   Most blue-collar, manual, retail, or food jobs are discussed in terms of hourly pay, even well-paying jobs   Some are paid weekly and others are paid every two weeks

I agree with the previous writer from Russia. Salary should be paid at least every two weeks - advance payment (as usual it is fixed amount which is equal to 40% or 50% from monthly base salary) and the final payment which may include vacation payment, business trip payment, sick leave payment etc. The Personal Income Tax rate which should be withheld from employee's salary is 13% (for Russian residents or foreign highly qualified specialists), and 30% for non residents. Also there are the special rules for average earning calculations for the periods in business trips and vacations.

Dont worry Elaine, execept of English -speaking countries, the rest of the world is normal. We talk about monthly salary, not yearly.

Especially Britishes like to complicate everything:).
