    Default The slower I worked, the less money I earned.

    1, The slower I worked, the less moneyI earned. Is it correct as a past tense sentence?
    2, The slower I work the less money I earn. Is it Future Tense or present tense? If it is a Future tense then how to construct such a sentence in Present Tense and vice versa.

    Thank you.

    Yes.

    2, The slower I work the less money I earn. Is it future tense or present tense? Present.

    If you're not starting work till tomorrow, say 'The slower I work the less money I'll earn'.
