Other questions about "Wages"

Q: Generally, the wages in rural areas are lower than those in urban areas. Does this sound natural?
A: It’s natural, but here are some things to consider:

Since wages can be seen as specific or general, it’s natural either with or without “the.” Since you’re talking pretty generally here, though, I would probably just say “wages” instead of “the wages.”

In speech, people often cut out “those” and just say, “lower than in urban areas.” In writing, though, it sounds better if you keep it in.
