Recent models of labor markets with (IMO realistic) search and matching frictions don't have a generic w = mpl result. Take the baseline DMP model, for instance. As long as both firms and workers have non-zero matching surplus, any wage is valid, ie. by throwing out the assumption that labor markets clear, wages aren't determined by that condition. Wage indeterminacy in these models is usually, though not always, resolved via a bargaining problem which allocates the total matching surplus. Thus, the share of surplus going to a worker may be substantially below their mpl if they have low bargaining power and a lousy outside option. Although I haven't seen a model with truly micro-founded bargaining weights (and truthfully, I haven't been looking closely), one would imagine that in an economy with chronically low labor market tightness and monopsony power, the labor share of this surplus could be stunted for quite some time.
