Francine Katz, a former high profile vice president of communications and consumer affairs at Anheuser-Busch, has filed a sex discrimination lawsuit against the beer company.
Anheuser-Busch Brewery, St. Lewis
Katz alleges that Anheuser-Busch maintained a male-dominated “locker room” work environment and culture that “adversely impacts women” and that pays women lower salaries and offers them fewer opportunities in top jobs.
Katz alleges she was paid less than half of what her male predecessor, John Jacob, had been making in the same position.

Elizabeth Colton, a 64-year-old Foreign Service Officer, has filed an age discrimination lawsuit against her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
After being offered a position at the U.S. Embassy in Algiers, Algeria, Colton was shocked when she was informed by the State Department that her job offer was being rescinded because she was only one year away from the mandatory retirement age of 65.
Ironically, Clinton is only two years younger than Colton, but the State Department mandatory retirement rule does not apply to political appointees. Colton’s lawyer commented, “Imagine if someone told Hillary Clinton she couldn’t be secretary of state because she would turn 65 before her term is up.”

Pace Airlines, a charter airline that used to be known as Hooters Air, has ceased operations and has laid off all but a handful of employees after a felony charge was filed against its owner and CEO, William Charles Rodgers, for allegedly failing to make payments on the health insurance policies that covered his 340 employees.
Rodgers was booked into the Forsyth County jail on Tuesday, and was released on Wednesday morning after posting $50,000 bail. The day after Rodgers was sent to jail, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission added to the CEO’s problems by filing a discrimination lawsuit on behalf of Chau Nguyen, an Asian flight attendant at Pace Airlines who was fired in 2006 after complaining that only white workers were being promoted. The EEOC said that Nguyen had made several complaints of discrimination after missing out on promotion to lead flight attendant.
On Friday, Pace Airlines stopped providing chartered flights for clients that have included the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, Bruce Springsteen, and the White House Press Corps. Pace had been previously owned by the former chairman of Hooters, Robert Brooks, who died in 2006 about three months after Hooters Air went out of business.
