One employer will not tolerate sexism!
This AP story about Trip Airlines is really making the rounds. I’m trying to imagine a world in which every employer is like this! Fab:
A Brazilian airline said Tuesday that one of its female pilots ejected a passenger from a flight because he was making sexist comments about women flying planes. Trip Airlines said in a statement the pilot ejected the man before takeoff on Friday as he made loud, sexist comments upon learning the pilot was a woman. The passenger, who was not identified, was met by police officers at the plane and escorted out of the Belo Horizonte airport. The jet continued on to the state of Goias after a one-hour delay. The airline said it would not tolerate disparaging remarks made about any of the 1,400 women working for it.
Roger Waters has been taking Pink Floyd’s ” the Wall”, which he wrote, on a new concert tour. Below is a favorite part of the show. I try to remind myself I represent the other side now! (in case it isn’t obvious, I am a teacher!) That doesn’t work.
