i am sure there is in some places and i am also sure there many cases of bias and discrimination for an infinite number of reasons based on the likes and dislikes of the powers that be and their minions. somehow they seem to be able to twist things to their advantage. wouldn't it be nice to live in a perfect world - - - - and be perfect ourselves ? not me - - - - i don't think so. to me i think it would bore me to utter madness to be in a place where there would be no way to improve anything including yourself. all personal opinion.

Yes-there is- As a department manager of a large discount department store, many of the department managers were males supporting families..my pay was good-but then I had half the sore to run. Many of the males, and the males I trained usually reflected on the fact that my pay was "addional" pay to husbands..it clearly angered them. When my husband, as a manager, started dealing with more women-he seemed to fall in the habit as viewing the women on a different level , treating them as needing to be cared for...many women excepted that. I hope its not still like that. There should be equal pay for both-as long as they both do the same quality work-in the same job position..with relative respnsibility.
