"Why American men may have less luck finding a job than women"

Via Drudge:  "If you’re searching for a job, the odds of finding one may depend on your gender."
Overall, occupations that are more than 80% female are projected to grow at nearly twice the rate of jobs that are at least 60% male between 2014 and 2024, according to research out this week from the jobs site Indeed and its chief economist, Jed Kolko. The site researched Bureau of Labor Statistics and found that many are jobs that are traditionally dominated by women — including occupational therapy assistants, physical therapy assistants and nurse practitioners — are growing at the fastest rate. They will grow at about a 40% rate, compared to an overall rate of 6.5% for all jobs.

The place that I buy steel from is owned by a husband and wife. She can handle her end of the angle iron.

Depends on the nurse.

The Blonde can give you chapter and verse on any aspect of chemistry as it relates to nursing you could want.

Could have been a methodological issue, Chick.

"Hey, Baby, wanna come over to my place and take a look at my titrations?" That just don't cut it with the girls today.

I'm pretty safe as an engineer. I expect to die as one anyway and if that should come to an end for any reason, I'll just become a heavy equipment operator. That looks like more fun.
