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.

GMAT loves to test different versions of idioms that are correct. Only one correct idiom will fit into the context of the sentence.
For example:
combine A and B
combine A with B
The only way to see which one is correct is to see whether you are comparing similar or unlike items.

However, this question is not really about idioms. It is about the subjunctive mood.

directive verb + "that" + subject + base verb

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 solved this one a few weeks ago.

Hi Vineet,
You are right and I tried doing the same but scouring through 100's of post is no mean task. The search option would be handy but again none of us follow a standard method for subject line to make searching through keyword simpler. If you search for posts using any specific method, please do share it with us which will help us avoid posting similar posts again.

Regards,
Amit
