They work FOR daily wages. They work to get that wage every day.
Not they work upon the daily wage.

It is, and another variation you could say is:
They work for daily wages.

People don't work on wages. They work for wages. But even with the right word, it's still awkward.
They're paid a daily wage for their work.
Their wages are paid daily.
