    Re: Hired for 20000

    I don't know the phrase "in hand." Does it have meaning in other varieties of English?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It's more usual as "cash in hand", Barb.

    Meaning that they are paid in cash? That that is their net pay after deductions? That they are paid off the records, or "under the table" as we call it?

    I am not a teacher.

    More or less, although it's not usually their net pay after deductions. It's more a case of their pay after having avoided deductions.
