I'd rather go for something like one field for date, one for hours worked, 
one for
paid and one for date paid, this way you could keep track of _when_ you worked
and didn't get paied, it's much easier and better in the long run than just 
the number of hours they owe you... (this way you could calculate number of
hours you work per week etc.).
