Overview

In a stimulating discussion, an advocate and a critic contemplate the central themes in the controversy over comparable worth. With equally forceful arguments, they address the questions of discrimination in compensation, job evaluation schemes, the role of supply and demand in the labor market, and the relevant legal cases and legislation. How much of the earnings gap is produced by the choices women make freely? How do sex stereotypes affect even evaluation schemes that seek to be impartial? What will be the consequences of reevaluating and adjusting the pay for "women's" occupations?
