AMD pays new CEO $150K LESS than her male predecessor

I hope there's just as much outrage whenever Ms. Su walks away from AMD and whoever comes afterward receives a lower salary starting point. My prediction is there would be no outrage if this happened, man or woman successor, simply an extension of the double standard that exists around gender equality.

Isn't it about time that all of us stop making comparisons on the basis of race, gender, etc., and just individuals stand for themselves? Personally, I think myself worth more than others in my same profession and act like it during negotiations, so I'm sure I skew the gender pay scale as a result. If Ms. Su is happy with her compensation, we should be too. If she isn't, then she shouldn't take the job.
