Emerging Two-Tier Wage Systems: Employment Opportunity or Wage Attack?
Malveaux, Julianne
Urban League Review, v10 n2 p34-44 Win 1986-87
Two challenges to "Equal pay for equal work" are subminimum wages and workfare. There is no evidence that either two-tiered wage system would permanently increase employment. Instead the results may be (1) less union strength; (2) lower wages in general; (3) layoff of workers in the higher tiers; and (4) more discrimination against Black youth. (VM)
