Pay Equity:: Empirical Inquiries

Some brief overview of book

Are women paid less than men when they hold comparable jobs? Is there gender bias in the way wages are set? Or can wage differences between men and women be explained by legitimate market forces?

Pay Equity: Empirical Inquiries answers these questions in 10 original research papers. The papers explore race- and gender-based differences in wages, at the level both of individuals and of occupations. They also assess the effects of the implementation of comparable worth plans for private firms, states, and-on an international level-for Australia, Great Britain, and the United States.
