Wage-price relations in the steel industry have constituted in recent years a recurring issue of nationwide interest and concern. Steel producers have justified price increases on the basis of the increased costs resulting from wage Concessions; unions and their supporters have denied the need to boost prices. An assessment of the arguments and facts in the dispute during the 19451948 period is presented in this article, which is based on research financed by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.
