Way to be, Kathy! That is how the ball gets rolling! I do not know if you actively recruit new talent, or if you already have all the help you need, but I think many women would just jump at the chance to come to work for you.Certified Aborists in Seattle | Woman-Ownedoutonalimbseattle

Kathy has already described her discriminatory hiring practices.Way to be, Kathy! That is how the ball gets rolling! I do not know if you actively recruit new talent, or if you already have all the help you need, but I think many women would just jump at the chance to come to work for you.
You could hire them on at modest wages, possibly, with the understanding that as an untrained person they are not yet worth much on the open market, but that the mutual goal will be to get them up to speed to allow them to jump ship for higher wages elsewhere.
All of which you are probably doing already. Nobody likes to have to take the time and experience the pain of having to train someone. I see that in job posting after job posting. Mark Chisholm's recent posting is the rare exception.
So, congratulations on all of your success, and may it continue.
In case you missed my earlier post, I have employed two women in the field, one climber and one ground person, in my short five years as a corporation with employees. I'd take Felicia Millett, Melissa Levangie, Bear Levangie, Marcy Carpenter, Rebecca Siebel-Hunt, Nicolette Eichholt, Alex Julius or Kate (Ladybird) in a heartbeat over a much larger group of male climbers around here.Hey Tom , got any woman working in the trees for you ? didn't think so
I'm sorry to say, women are tragically inferior by current standards and definition of the word. There would be no women's movement or feminists if not. It's not their fault nor something they/we should just accept. This is a mans world, so long run and engineered by. Times, micro in the realm of history, are changing in a few places on our planet faster then others... It's all good. We just hired our third women in our history. She out works most men I've worked with, she is an athlete in need of direction. Women are allowed to think they can do anything, sad reality is another. I'm all about empowering the under powered, with hopes of making a better tomorrow. Let's accept the truth of the matter, maybe joke about it to make light of it. If Riggs was truest joking about it, cool. Other wise, you down for dressing him up like a pretty girl when he passes out?Yeah, there is no POSSIBLE way the female candidates were better suited than the male ones. You basically just said women are inferior.
I accept duality into my life to help balance out the contradictions. You are right, everyone is allowed to believe they can be president or an astronaut. Reality is another harsh realm. I don't argue, I lively discuss and or debate opinions while respecting others perceptions. My wife argues, she does not respect me. Maybe in a few thousand years women will start to adapt to our world and start to crush men and their rule on this planet, for now I will help any way I can. How can you help if you don't accept the truth of the matter.Your post is contradictory. On one hand, women are 'tragically inferior,' and on the other, you just hired one (another). I like most of your post, but a couple things stand out. 'Women are allowed to think they can do anything' is the second part I take issue with. EVERYONE is allowed that same belief, and it's BS. Political correctness blows. That doesn't mean there aren't a decent number of qualified women out there to do tree work. We're not prizefighters or decathletes, there are many ways to get this job done. Like I said, you make some good points, I'm not trying to start an argument with you.
