Comparable-Worth Wage Adjustments and Female Employment in the State and Local Sector
AbstractThis paper simulates the likely effects of a comparable-worth, wage-adjustment policy in the state and local sector on female employment in the sector. The simulation is based on estimates of within- occupation male/female substitution and across-occupation employment substitution obtained using data from the 1980 Census of Population.
