Maybe she was a little *****, what does her sex have to do with it?
That is dumb. I feel like there are empty threats like that issued by men against men in construction every single day. I would say infinitely more than to women. Ridiculous...testified that a male co-worker said he would throw "the little *****" in the concentrator bins, huge receptacles for mixing iron ore powder.
Unless they're rod busters. :laughing:jlsconstruction said:I personally think chicks in construction are hot :laughing:
Let me re phrase. I think the idea of chick in construction is hotUnless they're rod busters. :laughing:
Yeah but women can't do that with other women. :no: :no:rselectric1 said:I've worked with a few women on the jobsite. Most have been painters who can hold their own and jump right in when the guys start their typical banter towards each other and the men always end up including them. It's pretty much a guy thing to insult, threaten, bash, and otherwise insult each other on a jobsite but really it's all in good fun with only rare exceptions. I respect the women who can jump in and be one of the guys. If it was a serious threat, then it's not cool.
Unfortunately they can't. They take it all emotionally and personally in my view, and then get all catty with each other.Yeah but women can't do that with other women. :no: :no:
I was never union, but I never saw any women here in commercial either. Guess they find better jobs down here :laughing:I don't know how many of you have worked on large commercial union projects but when I did they had both male and female restrooms with hand washing stations at each.
As far as working conditions for the few women that worked on these sites, the GC who I worked for bent over backwards to make sure there was no harassment and everyone was treated with equal respect. If anyone had not of treated someone with respect they would've been fired immediately. It's a new era and I think that study is a little outdated. But that's just my opinion.
When I worked on a state prison my company was forced to hire a percentage of minorities through affirmative action. Back then women were considered minorities in the construction trade. They were paid as much as union carpenters and for the most part we stuck a hose in their hand and they (this is no lie) watered the sand before a pour. One drove a skid steer, another tied rebar.Jaws said:I was never union, but I never saw any women here in commercial either. Guess they find better jobs down here :laughing:
Proper to me :thumbsup:Mid 80's I was the Super on a restaurant remodel.
Female Sparky had been on the job for weeks. Great gal, knew her stuff & flipped chit with the best of the guys.
New Tin Banger showed up. Was relentless on this gal one morning.
Getting up from lunch he made a rather rude remark to her in front of 20 or so guys.
She stood up, jabbed him in the Solar Plexus & went about her work.
He was left writhing on the floor gasping for air with the entire crew laughing at him. He left never to be seen again.
I know not proper, but different times than today.
