Blue Collar Women

Hardback
In this lively book, women who have broken with accepted societal roles and now enjoy careers in formerly male worlds share their experiences of accomplishment and frustration. They have made inroads with job salary,promotions, hiring policies, and training. However, sexual harassment, lack of acceptance from older male colleagues, and animosity from coworkers' wives, even inadequate bathroom and changing facilities are issues some of these women still face. Ferguson offers blue collar women or women thinking of pursuing nontraditional careers - vital information about many issues, including self-esteem, practical approaches to on-the-job differences, filing discrimination suits, and seeking support.
