Mandating Comparable Worth in Minnesota.

Roth, Lawrence and Ross E. Azevedo.

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.
