Usage notesEdit

In several Spanish-speaking countries, a difference exists between sueldo and salario. A sueldo is a periodic payment of a fixed amount of money given to a worker. A salario is the amount of money a worker makes based on the day and hours he works. Thus, sueldo is actually closer to the English definition of salary, whereas salario is closer to a wage. Regional variation exists, however.
