Information Request: Wages and Productivity Research

Hello all,

I'm looking for references that will point me to sources on how low wages might create a disincentive to implement technology-driven productivity.

There seems to be a lot of writing done on how technology can lead to productivity and wage increases, but I can't find anyone exploring the idea that stagnant wages may actually retard technological improvements, which supposedly leads to productivity and higher wages.
