Salary and Wages

Which is the better choice for you?


What is salary? Negative or positive? Salary is having a fixed regular payment made by an employer, most often, usually for professional or office work. There are both negative and positive effects of having salary. The positive effects are that there are usually very good benefits to the job and you get the same pay every single year. However, salary could be negative because despite how much you have worked that day or month, you always make the same amount of money.


What is wage? Is it any better than salary? Wages are payment for labor or services to a worker, usually on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis or by the product. It can also be a positive or negative thing to have just as salary. If you are a person who works a lot of hours in a day, this is the way you want to go. You get paid for how much you work. However, if you don't work a lot of hours, this could certainly break the bank.

Which is better?

In my opinion, I would choose wage. I think wage is the best choice because you get paid for what you work. If you go to over time, you get paid for that extra time. But if you were to go over time with a salary job you wouldn't get that extra cash. Another thing that is positive about wage is that most places pay you MORE if you work over time.
