Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang has been accused of paying a female employee at a lower rate and firing her after being questioned about the matter.
BuzzFeed News on Wednesday detailed allegations from an unnamed woman at Manhattan GMAT, a tutoring company that has since been acquired by Kaplan Inc. She claimed in a termination lawsuit that she was fired by Yang after she raised questions about why she was paid less than two similar male employees.
"Andrew always spoke positively of my work and my value to the company," she told BuzzFeed News. "This changed only when I approached him about the disparity of my salary compared to male colleagues in similar roles."
