How do you differentiate between wage and salary?

Everyone gets lønn. There's no difference between an industrial worker's pay and an office worker's, or short term and long term assignments. It's all lønn (if some branch or business calls it otherwise it's a quite local concept)

Does it depend on how long you work, or how much you get done, or is it just a set amount per pay period?

None of your business, that's what my salary is.

Not very Scandinavian of you.

I have not clearly discovered the Scandinavian action for this questions yet!

Ja, det er nesten forbudt å snakke om det i amerikansk kultur. Jeg tror det er trist.

More power to the people and unions, IMO. Only an employer favours from this being taboo

I'm not sure about that - I know a few English people who would be mortified with people knowing how much less they earn than what they actually pretend to earn!
