CHICAGO (CN) – A.G. Edwards & Sons and Wachovia Securities pay women less and treat them worse than similarly situated men, a class-action complaint claims in Federal Court. Lead plaintiff Denise Holder claims, among other things, that Wachovia paid higher retention bonuses to men than to women when it completed its acquisition of Edwards in October 2007.
