Q: What is the difference between wage and salary ?
A: Salary is how much you are paid each year. If you have an annual salary of $60,000, your monthly wage would be $5,000.

Wage can also be determined per hour. Hourly wage is generally given for lower paying jobs. For example, a McDonald's employee may receive an hourly wage of $8.00.
Q: What is the difference between wage and salary and income ?
A: 1) Income is money earned with no specific pay period implied. If someone asked me my income, I could answer in hourly, monthly or yearly amounts without causing confusion, but I might want to ask a question to clarify which they want to know about.

2) Wage usually implies an hourly amount, for example $12/hour (twelve dollars per/an hour). People are often used to comparing wages between certain types of jobs (fast food worker vs. plumbers) as they are usually paid by the hour. Up to a maximum (usually 40 hours a week) workers are paid the same rate. If they work more, it is common for them to get paid "time and a half" which is their usual (base) pay plus 1.5 times their wage. This varies from job to job.

3) Salary usually implies either a monthly or yearly amount. Salaried workers are paid a fixed amount of money for either of those periods and if they work overtime (more than 40 hours a week) they do not get additional money. The trade-off is that they can count on a more consistent income (see #1).
