Generally, people who get paid a "salary" get their money monthly, and get the same amount each month. A salary usually doesn't change based on the number of hours you work.  If you get paid a "salary", you usually say things like "I make $30,000 a year."
If you get paid a wage, it usually means that you get a certain amount per hour. The more hours you work, the more money you will make.

  • vacancy ·  the state or condition of being vacant or unoccupied; emptiness ·  an unoccupied post or office: we have a vacancy in the accounts department
o   flexitime a system that allows an employee to choose the hours for starting and leaving work.
o   Payslip ‘nómina’
o   to get a rise, to get a raise (In American English, a person receives a raise in salary. In British English it is a rise.)
