    They work FOR daily wages. They work to get that wage every day.

    Not they work upon the daily wage.

    Though I understand 'on' is alright in British English. But not my American English.

    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.
