Vice Media likes to post a constant stream of "woke" articles complaining about racism, sexism, the "wage gap," feminism, and the continued unpleasantness of sharing the planet with straight white men. They're very proud of their progressive selves for being so gosh darn progressive.
Vice Media has agreed to pay a total of $1.875 million to some 675 former staffers to settle a class-action lawsuit alleging the company consistently paid women less than men.
The lawsuit was filed in February 2018 on behalf of Elizabeth Rose, a former Vice project manager who said she discovered that women at the company were routinely paid far less than men for doing the same work. The suit alleged Vice violated U.S. as well as California and New York pay-equality laws.
Huh. Guess these progressives don't practice what the preach.
What a shocker.
As a side note, in the classic tradition of class action lawsuits screwing the actual victims, the five "named plaintiffs" scored a $15k payment. Everyone else in the class? They get a $1,700 windfall. Woooo. Sure taught that patriarchy a lesson, eh ladies?
Of course, the lawyers get $650k. Heh.
