    It means that you get some money, normally not that much but maybe enough to cover expenses, if you meet the 95% target.

    These guys are being paid allowance (which is basically money) for their good attendance. Anything over 95% is considered a very good attendance and they are rewarded for it.

    Thanks very much, but I have one more doubt: is attendance allowance a salary? what exactly is it related to? is that you have a salary and on top of that you get this attendance allowance???

    Thank you

    If a worker is given an allowance to attend, they are probably being paid at a lower rate than they would get when actually working. An allowance could also be paid to someone not working.
