    Oh, get back in the kitchen where you belong,,,,:eek: as my grandfather would say. Hey, good for them, however, and I'm "pro chick", but I tire of women wanting special recognition for jobs that they are fully capable of. Truth be known, women that don't want to be a Walmart cashier or health care, there's not a lot of good paying jobs for women, they can turn the handles like any man, always could. I say, what took so long. We never had women on any paving crew I saw, except traffic control. Women paving crews, what's next? The real reason is because they can't find a man today to do that. I only hope their pay is on par with a mans. They didn't say anything about that.

    Public works projects usually have minority quotas so using an all women crew potentially gives that contractor a competitive edge in bidding over other contractors

    It would be a hot or cold job. Women worked at the mill in Gary. Had to wear welders type clothing because of the sparks and heat.

    Great for them , although idk why women are wanting to work hard manual labor jobs. They are not very fun. I think they are trying to prove they can do the job which is great but those jobs are not fun or easy, but as long as i dont have to do it its fine with me . maybe they will go up to indiana and figure out their road crisis out there, women are much smarter than men , maybe thats what indiana needs is a all woman paving crew
