Description 0521441870 9.4 x 6.3 x 1.3 inches From Library Journal The term comparable worth has recently been introduced into the lexicon of human resource management. The concept refers to the theory that regardless of gender, individuals who have similar skills, training, and education ought to be paid equal salaries for relatively similar jobs. The impetus for comparable worth has been the much-publicized "wage gap" between men and women performing identical or at least similar jobs. Rhoads (government and foreign affairs, Univ. of Virginia) carefully investigates the policy of comparable worth as it has been implemented by the state government of Minnesota, as well as in England and Australia. Rhoads concludes in this carefully written and insightful work that where the the system of rating jobs for the purposes of establishing comparable worth has been tried, it has generally failed, leading to bizarre outcomes in the market. This is required reading for any policy analyst involved in wage and salary administration. - Gene R. Laczniak, Marquette Univ., Milwaukee Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
