I understand it well enough, which is why I think workers will in
general not want to pay each other an identical wage, since they know in
practice that not everyone acts equally.

Of course, in a democratic firm the members are free to pay each other
an identical wage if they so wish -- by voting for such a distribution.

And surely this is better than ... imposing an equal wage?
