Let’s face it; to all of you high rolling chauvinistic men out there, the ladies time is long overdue. The good women are the backbone of our society. GOOD being the key word.
When I was growing up it was the women’s role to cook, clean, take care of the kids, do the shopping, be the nurse of the family, be the book-keeper and put up with that pain in the ass old man she was living with. Because of their circumstances, they really never had the chance to spread their wings and fly. There were some very brilliant and capable ladies that never had a chance to show their stuff.
Today it is a different story. Society has everyone by the short hair and in many cases, demands both partners having to work to make ends meet. Besides the fact, there are multitudes of jet-setting couples that just have to keep up with the Jones and the Smiths and it takes two pay-checks to accomplish that. Many times the two incomes are not enough. I have seen droves of 7,000 sq ft homes with no furniture and empty refrigerators, just to put on the front.
Be that as it may; if a woman is qualified and can perform on the job at the same level her male counterpart, she ABSOLUTELY should get the same pay and benefits. Why Not?
I personally know many women that can outperform men in many jobs. The catch is; corporate America should not be compelled to place women or men of any race or religion in any position due to duress or outside pressures to fill a quota.
The day of the caveman mentality should have been over a long time ago.
I say more power to the ladies that are qualified.
I know of some very high-powered, incompetent men making big money that should not be sitting where they are. Just take a drive up and down Pennsylvania Ave and look out the window.
The ladies are going to have to take the good with the bad or the bad with the good. Along with the big paychecks comes bigger headaches. Their longevity has decreased, health issues have increased and there are many other detrimental factors that go along with being on top.
Giv’em hell ladies. There is no way they can keep slamming the corporate door in your faces.
