 Abstract: Through an analysis of industrial relations developments in Italy and Sweden --- two countries especially committed to egalitarian wage policies --- this article argues that wage egalitarianism as it was conceived in the 1960s and 1970s (compression of inter-occupational wage differentials) proved to be a strategic mistake for unions. It brought about fragmentation (involving multiple cleavages between blue- and white-collar workers, skilled and unskilled, male and female, and even private- and public-sector employees) as opposed to unity and thus produced the opposite results from its stated goals. The article also argues that if words like 'equality' and 'solidarity' continue to have meaning for labour organizations, they will need to be associated in the future with completely new supply-side strategies aimed at bringing about equality of jobs as opposed merely to wages.
