Mandating Comparable Worth in Minnesota.
In 1984 comparable worth was mandated for all local government jurisdictions in Minnesota. This meant each government had to set up a job evaluation system comparing pay for male- and female- dominated jobs. A survey of how local jurisdictions responded shows where the pay inequities are, which jobs are underpaid, how unionization affects pay, and a great deal about the process of implementing the mandate.
