Translation given was "our work are the same." That is not good English.

"Our work are" This is probably the worst error I've seen in this course

"Our work is the same. Why are the wages different?" should be accepted.

Wages and salaries are distinct, at least in English

Agree. Also 'Our work is the same, why aren't our wages? (the same) should have been accepted

Could also accept "Our jobs are the same so why are our salaries not the same" with "so" in place of the comma.

Our jobs are the same, why do the salaries differ?

Possible reasons: Different companies, different markets, different levels of seniority, different education, different prior experience, or different performance on the job.

I just got corrected to the very ungrammatical "Our work is the same, why is not our salary the same?"

I just got marked wrong and was told this monstrosity would be a correct answer!

Our work are the same, why are our salaries not the same?
