  •  Sigh. Male-dominated industry: Mgmnt, sales and (9+ / 0-)

    service were 95+ % male.  The 2 dealerships I worked for - and the 3 others I interacted with - certainly had the "eye candy" roles: front desk/greeter, cashier, the buxom Finance rep and the rare female salesperson or service writer.

    Behind the scenes it was bullshit macho jokes and misogyny.  Think high school locker room combined with the comment section of youtube.

    Ugh.

    Because of the $$ attained in management and top sellers, that was also heavily ReThug/GOP with all the knee-jerk Rush/Hannity talking points.  So the bigoted, racist shit was alive and well mixed in with the misogyny.

    Ugh again.

    I'm surprised I made it as long as I did: a compassionate and feisty liberal is very rare in the car biz.

    The GOP says you have to have an ID to vote, but $ Millionaire donors should remain anonymous?
