Per Hour / Per week

Are all three below correct? I’m not sure about the last one.

• Me pagan ocho euros por hora. / Trabajo tres noches por semana.
• Me pagan ocho euros a la la hora. / Trabajo tres noches a la semana.
• Me pagan ocho euros la hora. / Trabajo tres noches la semana.

Many thanks in advance.

All are fine, but will add that the last sentences could contain an 'a' before 'ocho' and one before 'tres'.

Thank you, Rusty. I had heard 'Gano diez euros la hora' used in Spain, but never 'Trabajo tres noches la semana'. Many thanks.

"*Trabajo tres noches la semana*" is incorrect. It must be: "Trabajo tres noches a la semana".

A pleasure.
