This paper presents intra- and intersectoral growth of industrial wage as two distinct dynamics of industrial wage change at the national level. The intra- and intersectoral growth rates of industrial wage computed for 47 countries during 1971-81 suggest that industrial workers in MDCs most rapidly improved wage levels both within industrial sectors and through their shift into better-paying sectors. LDCs showed the lowest level of intrasectoral growth although their intersectoral growth was slightly faster than that of socialist countries. The analysis of industrial wage determinants shows that international economic factors were conducive to both intra- and intersectoral growth of industrial wage in MDCs, but only to intrasectoral growth in LDCs. For LDCs, dependent development appears to be a limited option in bringing about the industrial restructuring into advanced sectors.
