“It’s called Gross Pay because it’s disgusting to see how much money you would have made…”

"It’s called Gross Pay because it’s disgusting to see how much money you would have made before taxes” was posted on Twitter by Mike Wells on August 20, 2021. “Gross income” is before taxes and other deductions; “net pay” is after these are taken out.

“It’s called Gross Pay because it’s disgusting to see how much money you would’ve made before taxes”—the same joke—was posted on Twitter by Roi Haïtien on August 27, 2021, and went viral (over 210,000 likes).


Wikipedia: Gross income
For households and individuals, gross income is the sum of all wages, salaries, profits, interest payments, rents, and other forms of earnings, before any deductions or taxes. It is opposed to net income, defined as the gross income minus taxes and other deductions (e.g., mandatory pension contributions).
