About the Author:

tner /f Frances /i Cornwall

Review:

"Hutner looks beyond equal pay for equal work' to the much larger issue of equal pay for equal worth, ' which some economists feel is the key to the amelioration of the inferior economic status of working women. After discussing the difficulties inherent in defining comparable worth' and the ancillary problems of job evaluation and rating, the author gives a historical overview of antidiscrimination legislation and comparable worth in Europe, Australia, and Canada, as well as in the US. The body of this book is a detailed description of four recent American comparable worth cases, developed principally through interviews with the participants. The final chapter presents the state of comparable worth in 1985. The real-world viewpoint of this book complements the theoretical analyses and examinations of the difficulties and specific details involved in the implementation of comparable worth. . . . Recommended for academic libraries that support courses and research in labor economics and women's studies."-Choice

." . . on the whole the book represents a concise treatment of the subject of comparable worth both in terms of describing the issue as well as in depth treatment of representative controversies. It would be appropriate to use this highly readable book in the classroom due to its case approach, extensive bibliography, and comprehensive index. Moreover, it is a good primer for managers to learn about comparable worth."-The Social Science Journal

"Most of the 50 million women in the American work force today are being paid two thirds of the salary that they would be receiving if they were men. Frances Hutner, a labor economist who did her doctoral studies at Columbia, explores the problem of sex-based wage discrimination and reaches an optimistic conclusion. She studies cases to show how procedures like litigation and collective bargaining are already moving the second sex' in the direction of justice and pay equity. . . . on the whole the book represents a concise treatment of the subject of comparable worth both in terms of describing the issue as well as in depth treatment of representative controversies.
