I am concerned. First business is bad, then I have to work overtime every day this week and now I am owed a month's salary. Time to get a new job I think.

Isn't "my salary" unnecessary in this sentence? If you simply said, "My boss didn't pay me last month" it would be understood that you were referring to your salary. What else would the boss be paying you?

True, have you reported it?

As far as I understand, in China salaries are typically talked about on a monthly basis rather than yearly. Thus "salary" is used here. But I do agree it sounds weird.

Why "didn't /did not pay me last month" is wrong??????


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JeffersonM376619

"my boss didn't pay me last month" should be accepted, far more natural

Last month my boss did not pay my salary is marked wrong?

Reported that "My boss hasn't paid me my last month's wages."

It sounds like laobanshang geyue

The official answer was "My boss didn't pay my salary last month." I put "My boss did not pay my salary last month" and was marked as incorrect. Reported as of 2020-07-04

Either : "didn't pay me my salary last month." Or "didn't pay my last month salary." Dont all other options except the one you chose. Ignore " Minor ENGLISH Grammar Flaws".
