Re: Glass Ceiling???

I work for a financial institution as the Director of Marketing and
Business Development. I also handle a portion of new employee training.
What Amber doesn't realize is that banks & other financial institutions are
some of the lowest paying employers around. The reason there are so many
women in these jobs is that men won't work for this pay. What Amber also
probably doesn't realize is that those subway workers, janitors and road
workers are probably earning more than the women in the so-called
"privileged jobs." I know that in my city, the average garbage collector
with a high school education is earning more than I do -- I have a Master's
Degree and 12 years' experience in Marketing and Training. Not all is what
it seems. In fact, Amber seems to continually express a typically male
viewpoint. Perhaps not all is what it seems there as well.
