Ever think about gender vs education in the work place? I never did either. Until I saw its effects first hand. The conclusion is that it sucks. And that it is still a problem. Here are some of the old posts on here about that:

I’ve been trying to file for unemployment. I have to do it over the phone. Why? Because I worked out of state in the past 18 months. Getting through is impossible. I am just hoping I can get through this week. Very frustrating.

Well, tomorrow is my last day of work. I think I am going out to lunch with my coworkers. It will be nice though to not have to drive in rush hour traffic anymore. And to be able to sleep in when I want to. Looking for a new job will be no fun though! If I can find one at all

One more week of work left. The bright side is that I will be able to get unemployment benefits. Granted those weekly checks will be tiny. And they will not even cover the rent. So that part is kind of a bummer.

Well, next week was originally supposed to be my last week. But I have gotten confirmation of one extra week. That means another full paycheck! Booyah! Sucks though to loose a paycheck like that.

Well, I am still going to be unemployed next month. But I just got word that it might be a week later than they thought. That is good news. Because that means one more paycheck before crappy unemployment. At least that is some kinda good news.

Well, I knew it was going to happen. Granted, I thought it wasn’t goint to happen until August. See, I work through a staffing agency. And I was hired for an assignment that is supposed to go until the end of August. But I just got word it is ending early. As in next month early. Eek!

Why is it that all of the high paying jobs seem to be positions that men are in?
You rarely hear of a female CFO. You rarely hear of a female VP of Finance. You rarely hear of a female CEO.
Yet there are plenty of female executive assistants. As well as female receptionists. And I can’t recall ever working in an office where a male filled those two positions.
