Why can’t it just be that these women (featured in the video/article) got fired/laid-off because of recession ramifications? Is a discrimination conspiracy theory necessary? H*ll, everyone is feeling the pinch some way or another. What’s next, a bunch of black men from General Motors will get together and claim that they were fired because they are black? While both scenarios, the real one and the hypothetical, can happen perhaps we should not focus our energies on reasons that are unsubstantiated. Besides, if we really want to be honest/fair countless women have been hired to adhere to a gender minority quota anyway. This leaving me with the opinion that they may not have been qualified in the first place while competent men are left on the sidelines waiting to get picked up by a second rate company. It happens. And, this is not written to take anything anyway from corporate women. Believe me; I am familiar with the well-to-do and intelligently dynamic woman in power. However, most of you reading know incompetence when you see it. Actually, I have worked for a black man who was only sitting in the Chief’s seat because the company had to ‘diversify’ as an obligation to the federal government’s under utilized EEOC.
Women can do some jobs better than men. That’s a fact – but once women begin to lodge lawsuits based solely on hormonal emotion and illegitimate information they may just shoot themselves in the foot. Regulating the ultra white feminist movement to nothing but whining.
Also, considering the data within the second link, why didn’t these suing women civilly address the obvious male-female discrepancy before now? (Take a look at the chart).
Money will keep one from complaining…especially if the ‘discrimination’ is not hitting one’s pocket.
Inconsequently, based on my acquired understanding from countless women:
Females would rather work for a man.
Is that true, ladies?
