I have worked for this company about 29 years and 10 years

Hi, I have worked for this company about 29 years and 10 years ago I was promoted because I got a 4-year degree in chemistry from SDSU. My issue is that I make about 20% ($10K to$14K) less than my peers. In the 10 years that I worked in this department, I'm still not fully trained (I'm about 85% trained). I simply believe that this has to do with job security.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes is in san diego ca.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I forgot to mention that My 2 peers from that department are caucasians and I am from Mexico.

I have a quick question. My wife is working for a company.

Hi there, I have a quick question. My wife is working for a company. She recently applied for an advancement. During the interview, they offered her 28.50. Apparently they needed to confirm that with HR. During the next 2 weeks, they hired someone for her position. Then, she found out that HR denied the offer, and offered her 25.50, which is lower than her current rate. To make matters worse, I held that same position and was hired 3.5 years ago at 27.50. Adjusted for inflation, that is around 28.50, what her supervisor offered.She has more qualifications than I had 3.5 years ago, and the only difference other than that is she is a female.So, now they are offering her less money than she makes for a more advanced position, they filled her job, and she is sick knowing that they paid a male more money 3.5 years ago with less qualifications.Is there a legal leg to stand on here if they don't:1. Give her old job back at the old rate.2. Give her 28.50, the amount she accepted the offer at, and a rate consistent with gender equal pay.

Can a employer cut pay in a certain section, although they

can a employer cut pay in a certain section, although they are doing the same or equal work as other employees. this was under the pretense that other sections were going to have a pay cut also. Its been 2 1/2 years and no other sections have taken a pay reduction. this company is massive and has factories all over the world and thousands of employees and this pay cut affected 39 employees, so it was not about the money.
