I make a decent rentary. Rentary is the word that I propose take the place of salary, as our salaries no longer go towards buying expensive salt. (Think sal like salt in Spanish). Salary originated in Roman times when soldiers were issued stipends for the purchase of salt. If a soldier did not do a good job he was not worth his salt. Now we work mostly to pay our rents or mortgages. I have a few coworkers that I could argue are not worth their rents.
