Comparable Worth: Is it a Moot Issue? Part III Controversy, Implications, and Measurement
In part one of this series (Moore and Abraham, 1992), the authors explore the topic of comparable worth from a historical perspective. In part two (Moore and Abraham, 1993), the authors discuss legislation and subsequent litigation that resulted from laws governing sex discrimination and compensation. This final article in this series addresses three major areas of controversy on the comparable worth issue including explanations for the gender earnings gap, the economic implications of comparable worth, and measuring job value. Together these articles should provide a comprehensive picture of the comparable worth issue in response to the question raised in the title, Comparable Worth: Is it a moot issue?
