Accounting for Wages

  • Sally Messenger

Wages are usually paid to weekly-paid staff and are generally calculated on the number of hours worked. A swimming pool attendant might work a 40 hour week and be paid £4 an hour, making the weekly wage £160. A Leisure Centre Manager is more likely to be paid a fixed salary for a year, and to receive it in monthly instalments regardless of the hours worked.
