I was wondering when I’d come across a global war against women item that did not intersect with the god problem.
Here it is. Can you imagine a major utility company treating women workers unfairly? You can? Oh, yeah, but in 2015?!
Kudos to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (the EEOC) for kicking off this lawsuit, and to Eric Schneiderman, New York State’s Attorney General, for joining in to kick Con Ed.
I just ran this on my calculator. If the settlement amount is divided equally, each woman should get around $12,666, assuming that the EEOC and AG are not paid out of the proceeds.
300 Female Con Ed Workers Share in $3.8M Settlement

Consolidated Edison, the New York State Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) have settled complaints from hundreds of female workers who accused the utility of unfair treatment.
