Pink Is The New Blue

14 Sep


We have a name for it now: The Great Recession. During this time, manufacturing jobs went bust. It’s not shocking that as the economy and industry shifts, employment must do the same. Have we learned nothing from a dated school system and curriculum created during industrialism?

Pink collar jobs are the future…I may have to look into this myself…. Jobs in industries once dominated by women are experiencing growth and many are in the health profession- nurse, PA, dental assistant. Men are beginning to follow the tide. Many blue collar workers are shifting to a new career and education is also taking notice with a plethora of additional offerings in health, medical and technology fields…figures. Academia can always capitalize on the trends.The other common thread binding these jobs is technology.

Teachers are another pink collar field. Good. More male teachers are welcome. I would think nannies fall into this category as well. 🙂
