Jerry, there is also the desire for fairness, perhaps even more powerful 
than the desire for equality since it underlies the latter. Many people 
do not directly perceive an equal wage rate as fair, but rather accept 
wage rate differentials as long as they are not perceived as too large.

I think there are good moral arguments for an equal wage rate also in 
the name of fairness. But for pragmatic reasons I think is is a 
secondary issue. I'm much more concerned with finding ways to increase 
popular control over the economy.
