n supermarkets, you are more likely to find women as cashiers than behind the meat counter. Further, cashiers are usually paid less than employees of the meat department.
In one store, cashiers have complained that women are being paid less than men and cited the wage differential between the mostly male meat cutter job title and the mostly female cashier job title as evidence that supports their complaint. Management argues that the profit in the meat department largely determines the profit of the store, thus the wage differential is fair to employees. Consider this situation from the two opposite perspectives—management and cashiers. If you were hired in the capacity of an industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologist by store management to use job evaluation to provide data in support of management’s position, what types of evaluation data would you gather? Discuss why.
