The First…

What’s been happening to us in the West is happening to both men and women. The better life style advertised by retailers who market imported consumables are doing so at the expense of people whose jobs they have exported or whose wages they keep low. Women in the families of those running those global entities do exceedingly well whether they or their relatives are CEO‘s, CFO‘s, COO‘s, VP of whatever, or president. But the many women with title less relatives or associates will invariably work in an office cubicle recording data, in a call center responding to consumer complaints or as a cashier receiving cash for items imported from Mexico, China and South East Asia, and will work more than one job to survive, experience low pay and forever face the threat of having their job transported to far away places, in one case to a place as far away as India.
