What we talk about when we talk about pay inequity

    Valeriya Safronova writes, "Early in her career, Jewelle Brickford, now a partner at Evercore Wealth Management, worked at a global bank in New York with a male colleague who was on his best behavior during the first half of the day, she said, but during and after lunch, his work ethic devolved. 'When he cam back, you would walk by his office, and he would have his head down,' Ms. Bickford said. 'And you knew he had quite a few drinks.' 

    At the end of the year, when bonuses were announced, a friend of Ms. Bickford's who worked in human resources told her how much that male colleague had received. 'It was many multiples of what I made,' Ms. Bickford said. 'He stayed there. I left.'"
