I remember a word "wages". What kind of payment is it ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HaroldWonh

Wages are paid weekly, salaries monthly. And no, you don't receive both!

I've never heard this distinction before and nothing i look up mentions anything about it even being regional.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sedona2007

Hmm. Since "the wages of sin is death", not sure that is actually paid weekly. LOL

why 'small salaries' is not accepted? :(

That is the gist of the topic but the structure is different. How did you translate the whole sentence?
