LOHN

In many compound nouns, the word “Lohn” refers to the notion of pay in the broad sense. In the strict sense, however, it denotes the remuneration paid regularly to a manual worker. It differs from the salary of a white-collar worker in that there is a certain relationship between the monthly amount and the actual performance of work, as in the case, for example, of public holidays and illness.
