Gender equality in the workplace is important — and one farmer is wondering if she's in the wrong by mostly hiring men to work on her farm.
A woman who owns a farm asked for advice after she was accused of sexism when she hired a man over a woman to work for her. "[Am I the a-hole] for only hiring men?" her post begins.
About ten years back, I(32f) inherited my grandpa’s farm. About 8 years ago my mom got sick, so I moved into my inherited house to be closer to her. I got a great job locally, and I’ve lived here ever since. In my free time, I rescue animals and take them in. On my land I have, two cows, one horse, one donkey, a flock of chickens, pigs, cats, and dogs.
I have a VERY demanding job, so sometimes I don’t always have the time to feed them. Obviously I can’t let them starve, so I hire assistants to help with them. It’s a physically demanding job, and not everyone can do it.
