I think its E.
B,C,D seem awkward to me.
A was a close second, but E won for me.

Whats the OA and OE?

I think it must be c. Here's the explanation .

The sentence should start with "to pay " since "requires of employers that" does not sound well.
so A and B are out.
D is very long and awkward
E compares jobs with job which is not parallel
Only C does the right comparison and is compact.

whats the QA ?

'pay the same in jobs' does not seem idiomatic.....

(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are--- Correct idiom here is require X to do Y(B) that pay for jobs historically held by women should be the same as for a job requiring comparable skills ---Correct idiom here is require X to do Y(C) to pay the same in jobs historically held by women as in jobs of comparable skill that are ---idiom is correct but to pay the same in jobs is awkward(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills --- Wordy(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills---Correct

Requires that – idiomatic expression plus Subjunctive

(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 [ Legislation is already a mandatory – why to have “should”]

(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 may be correct because it is subjunctive and thats what the sentence needs, but is 'requires that' idiomatic ?
