by Peggy KahnIncluding contributions by both British and American 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. American 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. Chapters discuss the possibilities and limits of equal value reform.
