"Paid" in context

Paid is a term that refers to the receiving of money or other compensation for services done. It is different from volunteering or working for free. Paid work is typically done by employees or freelancers depending on the job. Employees, who are typically on a salary or hourly wages, are usually given a contract to follow which outlines the conditions, expectations, and rates of pay. Freelancers, on the other hand, generally set their own conditions, expectations, and rates.

A person who is paid typically provides a certain amount of labor, in exchange for payment. This could include anything from selling products or services to providing physical or mental labor.
