Judge rules Hudson News discriminated against former female employee

A federal judge in Vermont ruled that Hudson Group Inc., the company that runs Hudson News newsstands in airports and train stations across the US, subjected a former employee to sex discrimination.

The judge ruled that Hudson News paid Wendie Dreves almost $5,000 less than her male successor and that this pay discrepancy was unjustified.

Dreves’ starting salary was $47,561, and her male successor was paid $52,500.

The Vermont Commission on Women said, “The decision holds that simply because a man is able to negotiate a higher salary than a woman does not justify a pay differential, especially given that women are often at a disadvantage in salary negotiations.”
