overload, rate, wage, hourly rate,, information overload, single status

1979-1981年,hourly rate 是我們公司算"標準成本"的用語。沒想到它也是衡量世界各大都市色情業的工資的....


Today's ‪#‎Dailychart‬ looks at how sex with prostitutes is getting cheaper. One reason for the falling price of the hourly rate of a prostitute is the downturn that followed the 2007-08 financial crisis. Technology and large-scale migration also bring prices downhttp://econ.st/XX6cMz


「美國人的原則就是以時間計費。就像你和心理醫生或律師約時間談話一樣,每分鐘都是錢,花一個鐘頭的費用就要談到一個鐘頭的話。在這裡學習也是,付了幾堂課的費用,就要上幾堂課。」她很堅定的說。
In Alabama, psychiatrists are paid anywhere from $120 to $240 per hour. This is for those who are considered independent contractors and receive no other benefits.


hourly rate 也可以是成本計算中某單位平均的每小時分擔的成本
hourly rateis the basic rate of pay per hour. Hourly rates are used largely, though not exclusively, as the means of expressing the rate of pay for manual occupations. Hourly rates contrast with annual salaries, in which the rate of pay is based on the number of weeks worked per year and which are used for most non-manual occupations. A feature of the movement towards single status in industry has been the abandoning of hourly rates and the use of salaries for all categories of employee.


rate
日常用語(Informal). To merit or deserve: people that rate special treatment. See synonyms at earn1.

不過男性還有些"終生成就"之殊榮

Taylor SwiftLedisiParamoreFeist and Amy Winehouse will vie for a prize that once was a stronghold of male performers. (Yes, Paramore has male members, but the lead singer of the quartet is a young woman named Hayley Williams.) Which is not to say that men don't still rate.

2007這大飯店水準的場地之租金
是採論時計費的

Known as a “kitchen incubator,” La Cocina (la-koh-SEE-nuh) is a shared-use space created two years ago to provide a platform for women entrepreneurs without assets. Offering a low hourly rate for access to 2,200 square feet of restaurant-quality kitchen space, the nonprofit La Cocina also provides training from high-profile mentors and technical assistance on creating business plans and building marketing programs.
“There’s an entrepreneurial gene,” said Valeria Perez Ferreiro, executive director of La Cocina. “And we are finding amazing entrepreneurs who are already cooking or have a product that is so promising that it deserves to be seen in the market and that we think has a chance for success.”
