Women genrally do not receive lower pay for doing precisely the same work as men. Rather, regardless of their skills, women have disproportionately high representation in jobs traditionally paying lower wages. If jobs paid according to the skills and education required by them, this de facto segregation would not not exist.
Which of the following is most likely true?
A. Some jobs performed by more men than women pay higher wages than jobs requiring comparable skills, but performed by more women than men.
B. Regardless of sex or occupation, a person should be paid an amount sufficient to support his or her household
C. As men enter a field, earnings tend to rise, not only for men but also for the women in the field
D. Little percentage gain has occured in the number of women holding jobs traditionally held by men
E. Generally accepted methods are available for evaluating the level of skill required in, and hence the appropriate pay for, any job traditionally held by women
