January 13th: Schultz v. Wheaton Glass

On this date in History  ... 1970:

The United States Court of Appeals ruled in Shultz vs. Wheaton Glass that two jobs must be “substantially equal” in terms of what the job is, to qualify under the equal pay ruling of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. 
The ruling was considered key in helping to define “equal pay” for men and
women.  The court ruled that a company could not merely change the job title or job description to pay a woman a lower wage than a man.
