This chapter contains the empirical heart of the book. The genesis and implementation of re-regulation of wages for posted workers is described and analyzed in both the core and the comparative cases drawing on extensive field research. Specific attention is paid to the position, interests, and actions of trade unions, employer associations, and the ministries of labor that elaborate and design the response strategies. This is linked to the book's broader theoretical concerns about Europeanization and comparative political economy.

Keywords: Europeanization; wages and salaries; employment; trade unions; associations; labor; political economy
