Is there a difference between: salary, wage and wages?
Thanks a lot
My salary is £24,000 a year.
Wages are historically paid weekly and I believe used to be paid in cash!
However, interestingly, the phrase "minimum wage" refers to the hourly rate of pay, not weekly. The minimum wage in the UK is £5.80 per hour for workers over the age of 22.
This is all very interesting to me. Having been self employed and not salaried for more than 30 years my (limited) knowledge of this is largely academic (in the loosest sense of the word).
