Meaning of "to earn" Nov 6

The term "earn" is usually employed to describe take-home pay. In the case of self-employed individuals, I suppose that "to earn" means net, once all the usual contributions have been deducted. If "to earn" is, in fact, being used here to describe the hourly rate invoiced, then perhaps this could be indicated.

Maybe it’s a British thing, but here what you say you earn is before tax unless stated otherwise. In this case, the linked article says that it’s the freelancer’s hourly rate that is being referred to.

to earn means get money by working, and deserve what one has worked for

Yes, the article does refer to gross hourly rate.
The title is still ambiguous though. Note that I referred only to contributions and not to tax; I meant before (income) tax. Once the compulsory contributions have been deducted, the level of gain is sometimes below that of income tax.
