It is subjunctive case.
Whenever verbs like advise, ask, require, request, order are used simple forms of the verb are used. This case is used to express emotions, request , order and hope.
eg: I asked that it be done yesterday(present subjunctive)
eg: If that were true, I would have done something else. (past subjunctive)
IMO A

(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are (REQUIRE IS SUBJUNCTIVE; AND HENCE "BE")
(B) that pay for jobs historically held by women should be the same as for a job requiring comparable skills (wrong use of subjunctive clause even though the sentence has "be" ---> that + the infinitive form)
(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

CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF SUBJUNCTIVE CLAUSE; that + the infinitive form

IMO A
