Comparable Worth

Principle of equal pay for work of comparable value, i.e., equal pay for jobs that may have different duties but that require similar levels of skill, effort, and responsibility under similar working conditions -- frequently advocated to redress sex-based pay inequities, i.e., between comparable female- and male-dominated jobs (some analyses consider race/ethnicity among job types as well).
