About 85% of the workers in my plant are women. Yet in the recent union elections there wasn’t a single woman candidate for local chairman. The union big shot said the job was too big for a woman. I asked him if he thought women are too dumb to know what’s best for them since we are in the majority. He said the wear and tear and strain of the job was too much. A woman would just break down under it.

His wife must really have a tough job on her hands.
