Asteroid 22562, Wage, was discovered on April 18, 1998 by the Lincoln Laboratory Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) Team at Socorro, New Mexico. It has a period of 4 years, 208 days.

It was named for Appleton, Wisconsin high-school student and 2006 Intel Science Talent Search (STS) contestant Nicholas Michael Wage (born 1988), who made the competition's finals for his math project.

Henk Middleraad, who created the glyph for asteroid Wage, has the astrological meaning of it as income; I believe it can also signify wages, as in compensation (wage issues) or consequences (e.g, "The wages of sin" [that is, the consequences of sin]).
