It's not an opinion, it's the way GURPS Income is defined and it's thus pointless to discuss GURPS rules for jobs without acknowledging that. See GURPS Fantasy p. 137-140. It's stated that Income can be non-monetary. Examples include the assistance of a wife, the use of land and a food dole.

Jobs, Income and Cost of Living rules are not confined to financial transactions. They apply to anything that has a value, regardless of whether that value is explicit or not.
