Basic problem stalls pay suit: Plaintiff made lots of money

Jacqueline Bowbin sued Bulkmatic Transport Inc. for gender discrimination, alleging violations of the Equal Pay Act. Bowbin began working at Bulkmatic’s Argo Summit facility in 2000 as a terminal leader. In 2002, she transferred to a job in sales. Between 2002 and 2006, Bowbin received pay increases worth an additional $27,000 per year.

In 2006, Bowbin claims, her supervisor told her she would be well into a six-figure salary with bonuses and stock compensation. But that year, Bulkmatic apparently did not award either, companywide.

Bowbin cried gender discrimination. But her claim foundered a bit in court when it was discovered that the male counterparts she picked for salary comparison purposes all had attained significantly higher education levels than Bowbin had. Four were vice presidents. The clincher: Bowbin had surpassed one of the vice presidents in pay during her tenure.
