Wage Justice by Sara M. Evans

Book Description

"This pathbreaking study sets forth the history of attempts to implement pay equity and evaluates the hidden costs of achieving equity. With candor and intelligence, the authors clearly detail the political, organizational, and personal consequences of comparable worth reform strategies. Using extensive data from Minnesota, where pay equity has proceeded further than in any other state in the nation, as well as comparative information from other states and localities, the authors expose the crucial initial steps which define public policy. "A perceptive and judicious analysis of comparable worth." Wendy Kaminer, "New York Times Book Review " "Very well-crafted. . . . Wage Justice has admirably launched the scholarly evaluation of pay equity, revealing the unforeseen complexities of this key feminist public policy innovation." Maurine Weiner Greenwald, "Journal of American History " "An insightful glimpse of the policy process." Marian Lief Palley, "American Political Science Review ""
