Principal flute sues Boston SO for equal paymain
Elizabeth Rowe, principal flute of the BSO since 2004, claims in a lawsuit that she she asked for years for the same pay as the principal oboe, a man.
The oboe made $280,484 in 2016, some $70,000 more than the principal flute. That’s unfair, says Elizabeth.
She is taking the action under a Massachusetts Equal Pay Law that came into effect on July 1.
