What's Your VerdictJannette was emomplyed in a glass factory. Her job was to inspect and pack glass jars in cartons. Men were employed in the same capacity,a nd were required occassionally to lift the packed cartons. The women were paid 10% less than the men were. Is the differnce in pay illegal?

A court would state that the women were entiltled to equal pay becuase of the Equal Pay Act of 1963.

Think Critically About EvidenceSuppose you were in charge of hiring workers to assemble very small eletrical component to make a toy. If you thought that females of Asian ancestry were most likely to do this type of work well, would you limit your interviews to this group of persons only?

You would not be legally able to limit your interviews to only one group of personal. Every racxe, gender, ect has the fair oppertunity for work under the Equal Employment Oppertunity Commision.
