Is ‘Equal Pay for Equal Work’ Merely a Principle of Nondiscrimination?
Jeffrey Moriarty
Associate Professor and Chair
Philosophy Department, Bentley University

Abstract:  Is it morally wrong for a firm to pay two employees, who belong to all of the same protected groups, different amounts of money for doing the same work equally well? In this talk, Jeffrey Moriarty argues that it is not intrinsically wrong, but that, in certain familiar situations, it is wrong as a matter of fact.
