Wage Inequality and the Organization of Work: The Case of Academic Departments.
Pfeffer, Jeffrey; Langton, Nancy
Administrative Science Quarterly, v33 n4 p588-606 Dec 1988
Data from 1,805 academic departments in 303 colleges and universities were used to examine the effect of work organization on wage variation within departments. Private control, larger size, and working alone were associated with more dispersed wages; greater social contact, participative governance, and demographic homogeneity were associated with more equal salary distribution. Includes 55 references. (MLH)
