Resolved Question:

37 years with a company and I'm the Purchasing Manager, I managed at one point a 2-3 million dollar inventory. Compared to the Human Resource Mgr and the Office Manager I'm 16,000 below the median. We all have the same educational background, some college and courses taken over the years. My pay schedule is approx. 12-14k dollars lower than my co-workers. I'm a African American.

Based on what you say, unless there are reasons for the lower pay which can be quantified and proven to exist fairly, there may be discrimination involved such as due to race, gender, age, etc. Not all cases where it seems discrimination is involved are necessarily due to discrimination, but where an employee believes they have been treated differently or given different benefits and opportunities due to their race, religion, age, gender, etc. they can consider filing a complaint with the United States Equal Enforcement Opportunity Commission here or here and/or speak to an attorney regarding a potential claim for discrimination and other potential claims under other state and federal laws.
