Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The title of this book understates its scope and value. Although attuned to the controversial policy question of whether substantively different jobs can be determined to be of comparable worth to an employer and thus equally paid, the theoretical overview and empirical data that England presents are of more general relevance and interest… England is exceptionally clear and even-handed in laying out all the positions in the debate. Advanced undergraduate; graduate; faculty; professional.” M. M. Ferree, Choice
