|Abstract: ||In a study conducted by the author in 2006 of five mixed-sex, worker-led cooperatives in Buenos
Aires, all of the workers in each of the coops were paid exactly the same. Five years later, only
two of the worker cooperatives – both dominated by women – came even close to maintaining
the same pay for everyone. The other three cooperatives, all dominated by male workers, had
instituted hierarchical pay scales which paralleled a concomitant decrease in workplace democracy.
An increase in pay inequities and a decrease in worker democracy went together; moreover, the
two paralleled an increasingly inhospitable workplace for women. This article addresses two,
interconnected, questions: How did this intertwining of pay and worker democracy happen, and
more specifically, how was this process gendered?|
