Gross or net income for Roth contribution



I think I already know the answer to this, but just double-checking.
I will only be earning about 3 or 4K this yr as a retiree part-time
worker. So I can only contribute this earnings amount to my Roth.
However, is it the GROSS earnings or the NET? I assume gross....
I want to be sure since I will wait until the end of the yr and
contribute whatever I have earned (under the max limit of course),
since I don't need it now, it will all grow tax free, and I can
withdraw contributions anytime anyway.
