        static void Main(string[] args)
            string JamesSalary, MarkSalary;
            JamesSalary = Salary.High.ToString();
            MarkSalary = Salary.Medium.ToString();

            Console.WriteLine("James Salary is " + JamesSalary);
            Console.WriteLine("Mark Salary is " + MarkSalary);


James Salary is High
Mark Salary is Medium
