    English Expression

    Dear Teacher

    Please tell me if it is proper English to say the following sentence:

    -This person does not work for free.
    or is it better to say:`
    -This person does not work for nothing

    Thank you so much

    Re: English Expression

    It is more traditional to say 'This person does not work for nothing'.

    However 'This person does not work for free' is widely used and universally understood.
