Including contributions by both British and America researchers, this book explores equal-value developments in the two countries. Through thematic chapters and case-studies, it examines legal developments, trade-union activity, the operation of job evaluation, and the race and class politics of equal value. America case-studies focus on the implementation of comparable worth in the state of Minnesota, campaigns for comparable worth among nurses in various public settings, and developments involving clerical and technical workers at Yale University. British case-studies focus on job re-evaluation at Midland Bank, the new local authority manual workers' job evaluation scheme, and activity in the Northern Ireland health service. In general the book discusses the possibilities and limits of equal-value reform.
