Across the nation, women lawyers have been taking a stand against major law firms in order to obtain their equal rights. As studies from professional sources have consistently shown that even in today’s legal field, women partners at law firms earn roughly 80% of what their male counterparts do. That results in a loss of over one million dollars per lawyer every ten years.
This week, lawyer Kerrie L. Campbell sued her employer, Washington law firm Chadborn & Parke, on behalf of herself and her female coworkers. Campbell is demanding compensation for a lack of proper wage as well as an overall wage gain to match that of her male counterparts. The Portland Business Journal has more on the story.
