Transcript tions (e.g. clerical and nursing), and then ()£id less than men in jobs which allegedly have comparable worth. The men's jobs with which the women's jobs*are compared are always blue-collar jobs, such as trucking, fire- fighting, police work and carpentry. If "equity" required an equalizing of wages for, say. stenographers and truck drivers, then inevitably the truck driver will have to forgo his raise so that the stenographer can be given comparable pay. Opponents of comparable worth have successfully punctured the principal myth that has given momentum to the concept — the notion that women are paid only 59 percent of what men are paid. The 59 percent figure is the average wage of all working women compared to the average wage of all working men. That tells you as much about sex discrimination as the statistics that the average temperature in the United States is 66 degrees tells you about whether to wear a coat in Chicago today. Factors other than discrimination account for the lions share of the wage differential. Men work, on the average, eight more hours per week than women; are more likely to be subject to occupational injury or accident; and spend more of their working years in the labor force. The average woman had been on her present job only half as long as the average man, and she is 11 times more apt to leave. Considering all this, it is hardly surprising that men tend to make more money than women. The concept of comparable worth would lead us away from our record of proven economic success toward a system of government wage control based on subjective evaluations made by bureaucrats, judges or job evalua- tors. Fortunately, such high-tax. more- government proposals are the wave of the past.
