    Nice poster although the message is a dubious one.

    There are only two jobs that are related to the sex of the worker. Mother and Father, and for those only up to birth and conception. EVERYTHING else is just work that needs to be done. My instructor in the machining class I'm in now is female, and knows the job frontward and backwards, on both manual and CNC machines. She was and is much better than the male instructor she was working with with. I've not been in the new guy's class yet, so couldn't say from my own knowledge about him, but the few folks I've talked to who've been with him in the day class aren't particularly impressed.

    My experience agrees, from contact via the working element. Women can make superior trades-people; they aren't predisposed with anecdotal experience. Few have initial abilities but extraordinarily open to a good mentor. They'll listen equally to not only 'how' but 'why' as well.

    I was not implying that the wimmins did not make good Tradesmen or that they could not work as hard but referring to the fact that more people competing for jobs lowers wages AND standards which leads to destruction of the nuclear family. Many men would have no problem running the house and looking after kids if the wimmins they married could earn more.
    History and facts are interesting things. Men and the wimmins have historically worked side by side for mutual benefit. The deliberate destruction of cultures in Europe circa A.D. 300 changed things for the worse and 'third &fourth wave' femicommunism have helped no-one.

    Hang about! A lot of the factories were already full of the wimmins. Had been since the industrial revolution began.

    Agreed, the other sex had occupied plants since Industrial Revolution, probably somewhat before. I think many were textile related, conflicts may have pulled higher percentages into real industry. I believe the carrier USS Midway CV41 was built almost exclusively by women.
