It depends on their ranking. Up to the point when they make the rank of Juryo, they do not receive a regular salary of any type. However, they will receive some money for expenses and for participation in tournaments. A Juryo can expect to get about 654,000 yen a month, far more than most businessmen. A top level Yokozuna can get 1,800,000 yen a month.

They don't necessarily get 'paid.' Their stable provides them with food, shelter and clothing. They win money for their stable by winning their matches. The size of the prizes depends on the matches and how much the sponsors provide.
