In attendance at an Eagles playoff game last night [Colorado, ECHL, not Philadelphia, NFL] I chatted with a woman about the education and incomes of her son and daughter. - You know where this is going, of course, since women are universally paid a fraction of what men get because ours is a racist, homophobic, misogynistic patriarchal society since the Republican Party is even allowed to exist. - Son, after 10 months of vocational welder training, earns daughter's annual salary in 3 months. This despite daughter, a school teacher, having a masters degree.
Thus explaining why welded stuff is so expensive. Not enough women welders to exploit.
