Construction no longer a 'boy's club' [Letter]

Barbara A. Res should do her homework regarding alleged employment discrimination against women in the construction industry ("Construction: a boy's club," July 14). The United Brotherhood of Carpenters recently pointed to a job which maintained 20 percent female employment for the 18-month duration. Times are changing and Ms. Res' incorrect commentary only fuels outdated stereotypes.

For more information, you can contact the Prairie Arctic Regional Council of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters.
