Wages are an even trade. I trade my time and labor for compensation. I gain nothing from the transaction as I've lost an equal amnount of time. Think of this as barter.
Income is anything made from an activity... or profits. If you make a product that costs x to produce and you sell it for y then y-x='s your profits or income. Philisophically, this can be taxed as you are making money from the American people and through the market that the government is regulating (old definition) via tax money.
Keep in mind that the current definition of income is irrelevant as the dictionary alters definitions every year to mirror popular usage. What matters is the definition of the time. One of the greatest tools the government uses to change the constitution is the perversion and evolution of our language.
The Supreme Court has also stated that the 16th amendment granted no new taxing powers to the government.
