Legislation in the Canadian province of Ontario requires of both public and private employers that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are usually held by men.
(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are
(B) that pay for jobs historically held by women should be the same as for a job requiring comparable skills
(C) to pay the same in jobs historically held by women as in jobs of comparable skill that are
(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills
(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills

i am confused about introducing the clause using "that" and the "infinitive" form ... kindly advice when we prefer the usage of one over the other

E is out, comparing jobs to a job
D is wordy, wrong tense
Will go with C

I would go fo A
This is obviously the question testing the knowledge of Subjunctive.
A&B (using Subj.) are a better choice over C,D,E (using Infinitive).
Between A&B I choose A, because in B 'should' is used in Sunbjunctive construction, which is never the case in GMAT.

A here as well.

Legislation in the Canadian province of Ontario requires of both public and private employers that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are usually held by men.

I think this has been discussed...

Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are

(C) to pay the same in jobs historically held by women as in jobs of comparable skill that are
(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills
(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills

A and B are out since the proper idiom is "require x (employers) to y (pay)" and the introduction of "that" makes the statement awkard.

Also, in B, "jobs historically held by women" lacks parallelism with "a job requiring"

D & E are awkward.

So C.

I like C.

I think the idiom "requre to" is required here.
