Women’s Earning Power

I found this Visual Capitalist very interesting. Maybe because I am a woman, but it does point out the contributions that women are making to the economy.

With me and my husband, I was in the category of We’re in This Together. I made more than my husband because I worked in IT and he was a white-goods salesman. However, my husband had worked at many jobs and if there was a bad recession and we lost our jobs, he could do a lot of different jobs. However, my job, which was well paid in IT might not have been easy to replace. Of course, this is would be the worse picture scenario.

What happen was my husband died early and I was a single mom. I never had problems with my job and stopped working in 1999 whenI was laid off and discovered that if I stopped working my net income would be the same as before (however, my gross income was lower). In 1999, I had two interviews for a job, but cancelled the third interview as I decided not to work. There did not seem a problem with getting IT jobs at that point.

On my other blog I wrote yesterday about Badger Daylighting Ltd (TSX-BAD, OTC-BADFF) ... learn more. Next, I will write about Aecon Group Inc (TSX-ARE, OTC-AEGXF) ... learn more on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 around 5 pm.
