That's not the point, in fact, it makes the point for there being no
difference even stronger.   If only hourly workers were implemented,
and a recurring transaction could be configured which always filled in
"40", wouldn't that solve the problem of salaried people?  If they have
to get OT, then you write "55", or you fill in row two, where it says,
"wage*1.5" with "15"

okay, so this is really what it's about.  
Not salaried vs hourly, but rather, "employees with rule X" and
"employees with rule Y" (and X might include "wage is $27/hr", OT is
"$39/hr after 40hr/week", while Y is "wage is $92/hr, no OT")

I thought an income class was something like "money received by selling
products" vs "money received by selling consulting"...?
