Labor Department sues Oracle for pay discrimination

(CNN) – Oracle is being sued by the Labor Department.

They’re accused of paying white men more than female counterparts.

The technology company is also accused of favoring Asian workers to fill technical roles.

Oracle makes software and hardware products used by the federal government.

The Labor Department warns the lawsuit could cost the company hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts.

An Oracle spokeswoman said the company does not discriminate and says the complaint is “politically motivated.”
