Comparable-Worth Wage Adjustments and Female Employment in the State and Local SectorArticles and Chapters
AbstractOur 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 occupational employment substitution that we obtain using data from the 1980 Census of Population.
