C:
static void Main(string[] args)
  {

  double dblHrsWorked = 0;
  double dblHrlyRate = 0;
  double grossWageBan = 0;
  double grossWageChi = 0;

  Console.Write("Please enter the hours worked: ");
  dblHrsWorked = double.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

  Console.WriteLine("Please enter the hourly rate($): ");
  dblHrlyRate = double.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

  Console.WriteLine("You make a total of " + (GrossWage(dblHrsWorked, dblHrlyRate)) + " dollars.");

  Console.WriteLine("People in the following countries make this amount of money: Bangladesh: " + (GrossWageBangladesh(grossWageBan)) + " dollars, China: " + (GrossWageChina(grossWageChi)) +" dollars.");

  Console.ReadKey();
  }


  static double GrossWage (double hours, double rate)
  {

  double dblGrossWage = 0;

  if (hours > 40)
  {
  dblGrossWage = 40 * rate;

  dblGrossWage = dblGrossWage + ((hours - 40) * (rate * 1.5));

  }

  else
  {

  dblGrossWage = hours * rate;
  }

  return dblGrossWage;


  }

  static double GrossWageBangladesh (double hours)
  {

  double dblBanGrossWage = 0;

  dblBanGrossWage = hours * 0.15;

  return dblBanGrossWage;

  }

  static double GrossWageChina(double hours)
  {

  double dblChinaGrossWage = 0;

  dblChinaGrossWage = hours * 0.48;

  return dblChinaGrossWage;

  }



  }
  }

I can't seem to figure out why the countries are not working can someone please Help me figure it out!

When you call your GrossWageBan() and GrossWageChi() methods, you are passing a value of 0 for hours to each method. You should be passing the number of hours in the calls to these methods, not grossWageBan and grossWageChi. These two variables are initialized to zero.
