Income inequality has attracted increasing attention of social scientists in the past few decades. Many previous and ongoing efforts have focused on the antecedents and consequences of income inequality at different levels of analysis. To extend our conceptual and empirical understanding of income inequality, we offer five papers in this symposium that examine the causes and consequences of macro-level income inequality (e.g., at the firm level or the country level), highlighting how organizations, along with their practices, serve as a primary mechanism through which income inequality can be generated and the consequences these have for individuals, organizations, and societies.
