  1. Commission based wage from Paola

    I am employed full-time and my salary is totally based on a percentage commission which I earn on the sales I make with retail shops around the island. I am only guaranteed a salary of €100 per week if my commission does not reach the €100.

    While in previous years I managed reasonably well because sales were good, currently business is not so good and I am not managing to live decently with the commission-based pay I manage to generate.

    I have realised that my weekly pay is not managing to reach the minium wage. Because business is bad my wage is paid late by my employer.

    Am I being paid correctly?
