“Wage” is a broad term that encompasses all types of payments made for labor or services. Wages have been defined to include all remuneration for employment, including commissions, bonuses, back pay awards, and the cash value of all remuneration paid in any medium other than cash.
For the majority of people, wages are their primary source of income. It is how they secure a place to live. It is how they feed themselves and their families. It is how they purchase clothing and other essentials.
Yet, there are times when employees do not receive their proper wages. This is either because of an employer’s mistake, carelessness, or intentional malfeasance. When this occurs, employees and communities suffer. Employees suffer because they cannot obtain the goods and services that their labor has entitled them to purchase. Communities suffer because taxpayer funded social programs often must fill-in the gap that this failure to pay proper wages has created.
