Report cites pay discrimination
against women and minorities
(Continued from Page 1)
mum salaries-excluding unassign-
ed research positions. Women
make up 61 per cent of the total
At the same time, only one per
cent of the women are classified
as above "maximum salary in
grade," compared to three per cent
for the entire staff.
The study also found that the
portion of women in each of the
lowest four salary grades ranged
from 63 to 83 per cent. The study
found there were no women in the
highest four levels.
In .an examination of minorities,
the study indicates that minority
group members receive salaries
which are commensurate with their
,salary grades, but they tend to be
concentrated in lower salary levels.
According to the report, 11 per
cent of all minority group persons
are below minimum salary grade,
as compared with 13 per cent of
the entire group. At the same
time, there are no minority staff
members in any of the four highest
classifications, but 20 per cent of
the people in the lowest grouping

In addition to requesting that

proposes that salary increases for

The report also supplies a com-
plete set of job descriptions for the
classifications it created. Each de-
scription contains the title, basic
function and responsibility, char-
acteristics, related duties and re-
sponsibilities, supervision received
and exercised, and qualifications
required for each position.
The first day of the three-day
Annual Conference on Aging was
held yesterday at the Rackham
Building. Over -8O0 representatives
of many professional and govern-
ment organizations attended meet-
ings on the problems of advocacy
for older populations in various
cultures and biological considera-
tions of demographic expansion.
A highlight of yesterday's ac-
tivities included. the recognition
of seven "American Pioneers in
Aging" for their past achievement.
Key speakers at the conference,
the nation's oldest academic for-
um devoted to problems of the
aged, include Sen. Frank Church
(D.-Idaho), chairperson of the
Senate Special Commission on Ag-
ing, Dean Wilbur Cohen of the
University's School of Education,
and Arthur Fleming, chairperson
of the White House Conference on
Fields to be covered in the re-
maining two days of the confer-
ence include aging and the econo-
my, aging and leisure, and pro-
gress being made toward a na-
tional policy on the aging.
The problems of the elderly have
become a significant issue in this
election year. A 20 per cent Social
Security increase was passed over
the threat of veto by President
Nixon. Further, a bill to provide
free meals to the elderly poor was
vetoed by Nixon, saying the pro-
gram was too costly.
Sen. George McGovern, Demo-
cratic presidential nominee, has
said that he will give an addi-
tional boost in Social Securitydas
a means to help the elderly poor.
Also included in the proposal are*
recommendations for yearly per-
formance evaluations of all staff,
an appeals procedure, and a pro-
cedure for the system itself to ad-
just to future needs.
Virginia Nordin, a chairperson of
the Commission for Women, says
that the findings of the Hayes
study "verify what women have
been saying" about salary in-
"All in all it is a report that will
help women on this campus a great
deal," she said.
Nordin interpreted the study's
findings to mean that either wo-
men had been "misclassified" into
low paying jobs or that the ad-
ministratorshad perceived of work
done by women as less important
than similar work done by men.
The Hayes report suggests that
part of the reason for the salary
differences might be that men hold
more seniority in their present
classification than do women. The
report also says that "many clas-
sifications predominantly peopled
by women have been increased in
relativeorder," thus suggesting
that these classifications had pre-
viously been placed at too low a
