TheStreet's Jim Cramer gave a shout out to the Marc Benioff, the CEO of Salesforce.com (CRM) - Get Report on Equal Pay Day. The day seeks to draw attention to the pay gap between men and women. Cramer said Benioff looked at his employees' salaries and upgraded the pay of all his female employees when he discovered they were being paid less than me. 'Let Benioff be a lesson on Equal Pay Day,' said Cramer. On average, working women earn 79-cents for every dollar made by a man. For minority women, the pay disparity nationally is even worse. Cramer is portfolio manager of the Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust.
