Posted: 8/2/2013 | By: Andrew Thompson | The Philly Post
Philadelphia Weekly senior writer Tara Murtha filed suit in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against her employer yesterday. She's alleging gender-based discrimination in pay in a “male-dominated, sexist and chauvinistic atmosphere.”
The complaint, referring to Murtha as “one of the most important and respected investigative journalists in the United States,” claims that a $2,000 cut in pay was not eventually reinstated based on her gender.
