4 Women Sue Nike for Unequal Pay

Four former female employees are suing Nike for unequal pay and limited opportunities for women to be promoted. The women want to showcase the inequalities they faced and not only put an end to discriminatory policies at Nike, but shift the conversation about workplace systems of discrimination at large. If the lawsuit becomes a class-action, one of the former employee’s lawyers believes that at least 500 other women could join. Recently, Nike admitted its female employees make 99.9¢ for every $1 men earn. The corporation has attempted to address company problems through some new steps: implementing an anonymous hotline for employees to voice concerns, offering company-wide unconscious bias training, and they just hired the first chief diversity and inclusion officer.
