The Term "Salary" I wonder many of us may not be aware of its origin,Incidently I happened to know abt this on a History Channel.Here I would like to share the same -
The Latin Word 'Salt" Gave birth to Word Salary. The Fact is During Ancient Romans Era,the workers were paid in the form of Salt against their work.Thus the word Salary came into existence.
Also the value of salt in olden days was so much that created the erection of Great wall of china.That time they collected tax on salt.
Many other interesting Facts abt the importance of salt gave me a understanding that Salt is really an important ingrediant in our life.
