Submission + - Lawsuit: Oracle Called $50K "Good Money For An Indian" (

jfruh writes: A former Oracle sales manager is suing the database company for what he called racially discriminatory salary-setting practices. Ian Spandow wanted to transfer a high-performing salesman from Oracle's India office to California. When he requested a salary of $60,000 a year or more for the employee, equivalent to what his white American counterparts received, he was told instead to offer $50,000, which was "good money for an Indian." When Spandow protested, he was himself summarily fired.
