Econometric Analyses of the Empirical Consequences of Comparable Worth: What Have We Learned, Issue 2672
This paper presents a survey of the small, but growing, empirical literature by economists on the consequences of comparable worth. It discusses in turn studies of comparable worth's effects (or potential effects) on the male/female earnings gap, on female employment, on female labor supply and occupational mobility, and on women and their families as a group. The survey is critical in nature and areas in which further research is needed are indicated.
