Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
This guide, which is designed for women interested in learning about successful fair pay initiatives and ways of achieving fair pay, profiles organizations offering information about fair pay and summarizes selected achievements of women employed by state, county, and city governments and private employers. Presented first is background information about the Fair Pay Clearinghouse, which was created by the U.S. Department of Labor's Women's Bureau to help employed women access information about successful strategies for achieving pay equity. Next, unions, coalitions, and job evaluation studies are discussed as possible first steps toward achieving fair pay. In the remainder of the guide, the possible outcomes of those strategies are illustrated through profiles of fair pay initiatives and their effects in the following locations: Minnesota state government; Connecticut state government; Yale University; the government of Maryland's Montgomery County; the Los Angeles city and county governments; and Santa Clara County, California. Concluding the guide are the addresses of the 10 regional offices of the Women's Bureau. (MN)
