Gross earnings or wages arethose paid directly and regularly by the employer at the time of each wage payment. They include the value of any social contributions, income taxes, etc. payable by the employee, even if actually withheld by the employer and paid directly to social insurance schemes, tax authorities, etc. on behalf of the employee.

Here, instead of hours worked, hours paid/number of employees might have been used as a measure of volume of labour.""
