“It matters a lot to me and I want to move on this path.”

In July last year, the BBC had to make public the salary of all employees earning more than one and a half million pounds annually.

Gracie had said that he was upset to know that two men of the BBC find at least fifty percent more wages than women in international editorials.

BBC America Editor John Sopel received salary between two and a half million pounds, while BBC Middle East editor Jeremy Baven received salary between £ 1.5 and £ 2 million.

Although Carey Gracie was not on the list, which means that his salary was less than half a million pounds annually.

In his open letter, Gracie had said that the law of equality says that men and women doing the same thing should get equal pay.

The BBC has now admitted that Gracie was told that he would be given a salary equal to the editor of North America.
