seconding Chilean-1's suggestion, but


Explanation:
with a word of caution. In U.K. and U.S. business, large companies often employ a system of management in which there are two separate hierarchies. The "line management" side consists of "line managers," who are responsible for deciding policy and running the company's main activities (manufacturing, sales, etc.), while the "staff management" and its own "staff managers" are responsible for providing the support services (accounting, warehousing, personnel management, plant maintenance, etc.). -- To avoid confusing English-speaking readers, I'd suggest translating "los salarios del personal de linea" as "the wages of production-line personnel," which clearly fits the context. (NOTE: Watch out for the false cognate "salarios," which isn't the same as "salaries," which in English usually refers to the money side of the compensation package that companies provide to executives, managers, and senior staff.) -- Of course, it has been argued that some salaries of "line management" are unfair, but quite in the other direction! -- Best, HC

front line employees or production line workers


Explanation:
Depending on the context, if "linea" refers to a production line in a plant then we use production line workers, but if "linea" is used figuratively, we use front line employees.
