Unequal pay may be a sign of discrimination

In California, many employees settle for lower wages than they would like, simply because there are too few options available or because they do not think they can negotiate a higher rate. However, one of the big issues facing some workers is being paid less for their job than a colleague doing the same job. There are times when this can be justified. However, if you are being paid less for a reason unrelated to your job, such as your gender, it may be considered discriminatory.
