compound adjectives
 
which is correct ? a badly-paid worker or a bad-paid worker ?

badly-paid, you can īt affect an adjective with another adjective, so you need the adverb "badly", if not, (a bad paid worker, with no hyphen) would mean the worker is bad and gets paid. :P

The option is "badly-paid"

Cheers!!!
