Definition of wage | SubjectCoach

Your wage is a payment for the work you have done, based on the number of hours or days you have worked. You might also be paid a wage for the amount of work you have completed.

Wages may be paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

For example, if Jasmin earns \(\$22\) per hour, and worked for \(15\) hours last week, she earned a wage of \(\$330\) last week.
