Rosie the Riveter better watch out

I ran across this interesting blog today. Mona is a ductwork worker, an apprentice, one of only 3 women in her union.

When I first decided to get into the trades, I really wasn’t sure where it would take me, or how much I would get out of it. Once I actually started work and realized the general simplicity of it, I wondered if it would keep my interest. Generally we fabricate and install ventilation in commercial buildings.

I’m glad to see women going into trades. Hell, at this moment, I’m glad to see anyone going into trades!

But women … my mother always got upset at tradespeople who come into your house, make a mess and don’t clean up after themselves, leaving it to the homeowner to clean up those little bits of plastic insulation or the little bits of gyprock dust leftover. Wonder if Mona cleans up after herself.

And her blog is nice! She uses pictures and so on to punctuate her blog entries. And she’s a Canadian. What more could you want?
