  Section 1. Paragraph (c) of subdivision 1 of section 118 of the  civil

  (c) The principle of fair and equal pay for similar work  OR  SUBSTAN-
TIALLY  SIMILAR  WORK,  WHEN VIEWED AS A COMPOSITE OF SKILL, EFFORT, AND
RESPONSIBILITY, AND PERFORMED  UNDER  SIMILAR  WORKING  CONDITIONS,  AND
WITHOUT  DISCRIMINATION  BASED ON STATUS WITHIN A PROTECTED CLASS, shall
be followed in the classification and  reclassification  and  the  allo-
cation  and  reallocation  of positions pursuant to this article and all

OR CLASSES IN THE  SAME  ESTABLISHMENT  IS  PAID  FOR  SIMILAR  WORK  OR
