      Civil-service reforms during this period of structural adjustment (–90s) typically failed to counter wage compression. The governments of Ghana, Mozambique, and Uganda were exceptions; they adopted specifi c measures to decompress wage structures as part of their civil-service reforms.4 For example, in Uganda.   The goal of this volume is to study this ‘public sector shock’. While budgetary reforms seek to ensure a more balanced and sound economic policy, they may generate new work inequalities among public sector employees, most particularly among women, who account for a considerable proportion of public sector employment.
