Francine Katz worked her way through the ranks of Anheuser-Busch Corporation, the company that makes Budweiser and Bud Light. She worked for the company for 20 years, rising up from a young corporate lawyer to vice president of the corporation. But after the company’s 2008 sale to Belgian brewer InBev in a hostile takeover, she realized the sexist atmosphere she had grown accustomed to was costing her millions in well-deserved salary and bonuses.
Katz was the company’s key strategist and top female executive. She defended the company in front of Congress and on TV news shows across the country. During the 2008 hostile takeover, she complained to top executives about the extreme pay disparity between herself and her male counterparts. The lawsuit, filed back in 2009, has just finally entered the courts for trial. Katz is seeking at least $9.4 million in back pay from compensation she claims she deserved from 2002 to 2008.
According to Katz attorney, the only problem her client might face in this case is jury’s outlook on how much Katz actually made during those years. To be fair, she was still grossing millions each year, but her case is focused not on how much she made, but rather the pay disparity. Top executives are expected to testify during the trial.
