How can I rewrite this program so it will receive all employees as input?

var name: string;
    age: integer;
    years: integer;


procedure FINDPAY (name: string;
                   age: integer;
                   years: integer);

  var
   wage: integer;
   temp: integer;

  begin
    wage := 0;
  for temp := 1 to years do
         wage := wage + temp;
           wage := 100 + age + wage;
             writeln (name, ' $', wage);
  end; {FINDPAY}

  begin {main}
    name := 'Jack';
    age := 54;
    years := 32;
    FINDPAY (name, age, years)
  end.

You did post.  Try the following code and see if it works and see if you can work out what to do next.

type
  datatype = record
    name : string;
    age : integer;
    years : integer
  end;
  data_array = array[1..5] of datatype;

var
  thedata : data_array;
  i : integer;

begin
  for i := 1 to 5 do
    begin
      readln(thedata[i].name);
      readln(thedata[i].age);
      readln(thedata[i].years);
     end;
end.

The answer depends on what you want to do with the information. If you just want to display the wages, use a non-commited way like vikiing proposed.
If you want to save it to disk or manipulate it in some other way, store it in an array (or a linked list -- pretty difficult) as dbrunton suggested.

Most MSPs worth their salt are already offering cybersecurity to their customers. But cybersecurity as a service is wide encompassing and can mean many things.  So where are MSPs falling in this spectrum?
Many businesses neglect disaster recovery and treat it as an after-thought. I can tell you first hand that data will be lost, hard drives die, servers will be hacked, and careless (or malicious) employees can ruin your data.
