Of those 12, all were women except one: ”

What I’d be curious to know is, of those 12 appointments, how many WERE held by men and got replaced by women. Given this argument is made to counter the claim “Surely, you say, many of those are holdovers from previous administrations.”.

but overall, it very much looks like a case of gender bias favoring women. And this is government after all, where, if memory serves, well over 60% of all employees are female.

Comment on Commentary: Is MIA leadership a ‘girls-only’ club? by elizabethgnon http://ifawebnews.com/2014/08/12/commentary-is-mia-leadership-a-girls-only-club/comment-page-1/#comment-248020 Sun, 31 Aug 2014 23:14:20 +0000 http://ifawebnews.com/?p=45450#comment-248020 If you look at rates of girls graduating from high school, getting college degrees, getting advanced degrees, etc, you can see girls are leaving boys in the dust. As our society continues to progress in terms of not holding girls back and giving them equal opportunity, you will see even more of this. Although men will likely always be stronger than women, we are better by almost every other conceivable measure. Get used to picking up our trash and unplugging our toilets, boys!

Namely, Sabrina Wells who has a degree in public administration and is over IT, HR, and accounting. Her accounting head has a degree in gym. Check it out for yourselves.

Comment on J.D. Power ranks satisfaction with personal insurers; familiar names rank high by Jeff http://ifawebnews.com/2014/08/19/j-d-power-ranks-satisfaction-with-personal-insurers-familiar-names-rank-high/comment-page-1/#comment-231350 Wed, 20 Aug 2014 12:50:53 +0000 http://ifawebnews.com/?p=45551#comment-231350 Look at the carrier last on the list, (one of my primary commercial carriers). It is further evidence that companies who have become slaves to the quarterly report have done so at the expense of true customer satisfaction. I don’t represent Erie, but maybe I should…

Comment on Most Americans worried Obamacare exchanges will fail again, cost more by Ross Schriftman http://ifawebnews.com/2014/08/19/most-americans-worried-obamacare-exchanges-will-fail-again-cost-more/comment-page-1/#comment-230028 Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:43:30 +0000 http://ifawebnews.com/?p=45590#comment-230028 Lack of confidence, increasing premiums and constant flux with people’s health insurance will continue to show negative poll results.

I am seeing 52% to 82% rate increases in the small group market in the Philadelphia region. My own individual health insurance premium as a single old guy will jump by at least $3,000 in 2015 and my deductible will go from $5,000 to $6,000 as Blue Cross is dropping their medically underwritten individual policies at the end of the year….but have had the 10 essential benefits (ingredients) including pregnancy and child dental and vision. Wish me luck as the first man in history to have a baby.

I am in HR recruiting so I am telling you that there is still a bias against women in higher level positions. and then add the ‘age factor’ to that. Even your biggest insurance companies have ‘laid’ off their older workers to hire ‘younger workers’. Also, salaries for women are still lower than men even in the same positions. I wish people would file with the EEOC but it would mean the end of their career. I think people should be hired on their own merit and who works best with the culture…and that will all depend on the size of the company.
