Transcript for Women accuse Google of discrimination against female employees
We turn to a major new lawsuit for women at Google claiming g@nder discrimination. Saying the company pays men more than women and gives women fewer opportunities. Our chief business correspondent Rebecca Jarvis is here with the story. Good morning, Rebecca. Good morning, Michael. Yes, that's rye of the three women have tied the lawsuit accusing Google of discriminating against female employees by systematically paying them lower compensation than Google pays to male employees performing substantiallily similar work. Essentially it is saying they're underpaying them denying them promotion opportunities and they want to make it a class action suit covering all women who worked at Google within the last four years. And a spokesperson for Google telling me they disagree with the central allegations and that the company has extensive systems to place -- to ensure that we pay fairly. The department of labor is also investigating Google's hiring practices. This is not the end. We'll continue to hear about this. When is this going to stop? The more people talk about this, the more it's exposed if it is, in fact happening, the more change we can make. We can hope. Yes, absolutely. Okay. Yes, we can. All right. Thanks, guys.
