What is the difference between wages and salaries?

A wage is the payment you receive for your labor or
services, usually on an hourly, daily or piecework basis. A
salary is a fixed payment, made periodically (weekly, bi-weekly,
monthly, etc.) to you as compensation for your
work.

agree  Ian M-H: Yes. The distinction is becoming less common, at least in the UK, but if the German text has it then safest not to drop it.

agree  Hilary Davies Shelby: exactly! Especially in the US, many people are still paid weekly wages - and when I went over there to work I was really surprised that Americans often cash physical "paychecks" too!
