Big Red's big pay gap: $13,000 gulf between male and female Oracle staffers – reports


Re: All else being equal...

That's all very well and good (well not really) but you actually didn't answer his question.

For any company that is cost conscious, why would they pay men more than women if they are doing the same job? Why wouldn't the company be full of lower paid women since that would improve the bottom line? For that matter, why wouldn't the company be full of brown women if they could get away with paying them even less?

And don't even try to assert that it doesn't happen. Why do you think all these companies are outsourcing to India?
