why and what kind of women 'flaunt' their bodies?...sm

Posted By: lara on 2009-09-12
In Reply to: That's a really good point.... - MT

This is the question. Why do they flaunt their nice bodies?
Is this to entice men? Running around half-naked and then they wonder when they get raped.

BTW, I have a very nice body, but I do not flaunt it, this is a very risky behavior.

"ONLY a profession of predominantly women would call the other women crazy for wanting the basics
If this were a male-predominant industry, I can guarantee you the companies would be offering more or else they wouldn't have any workers. Men don't stand for the stuff women do. I don't understand why women do not think they are worth a fair wage, decent benefits, and a little vacation time here and there. Many say this is just a part-time gig while they raise a family. Does that mean your time is less valuable? I just don't get it.
most companies are dying for even just warm bodies
most of the time if you suck, but are trying, they will keep you. They would rather pay you garbage to type at least SOMETHING than have the work sit. It's a pathetic business these days... sickly and pathetic
How do you know they are just training WOMEN?  LOL  See, that is part of the problem with this industry...everyone assumes only WOMEN do the work.
What are the initials of these 2 women. I think I know but not sure. Why do they keep them.
Is that the one that is so proud of being run by all women?
women dominated?

I don't know, maybe would be better.  When I began, pay scale was great -- could make a VERY good living.  I think it is more the mergers and free trade agreement and little government regulation that is bringing us down.  Lots of men in factory work have been plunged into poverty by corporate greed.



Yes, I believe the MT industry has gone all out, especially the home-based, in exploitation of women.  These MTSOs are pushing to get by with as much as they can.  How many guys do we see now as MTs?? There used to be a fair number of men doing transcription ... no more.  Maybe these guys got wise a long time before we ever will.  Women have always gotten the dirty end of the stick in the work force, but the MT industry has carried it to extremes, making demands they wouldn't make in any other industry... lower salaries, being manipulated re. schedules and hours, cheated on line counts, unpaid demographic work, etc. etc. etc.  I could go on and on.  It will stop when we make it stop.... sadly, there are MTs who so desperately need the income they'll put up with it. 

matronly women.............
I am not there yet, but I know already now that I am going to enjopy those 'golden years' or do my best to do so.
Already now I would not like to go 1 day back.

Yeah, they don't want women...
dressing likes prostitutes in their country.  Can you blame them?  Look at how some American women dress...and this is what we call 'freedom.'  It's pathetic!
Some women who've gone to the UAE have
Another nosy one fighting with me over nothing! You women (?)
jump in threads and fight with the wrong person!! Aren't you embarassed? Can you follow conversations in real life? I doubt it! I'm not talking about computers or anything - I'm on Busy MTings side, really.  We're having a fine conversation, in case you hadn't stuck your nose in the full thread!!  I'm not the bozo worrying about whose computer she's using and that nonsense. AND YES I WORKED FOR SPHERIS!!  HORRIBLE! JUST ANOTHER MONSTER NATIONAL! And I work for MQ - YUCK.  But it pays the bills, though that is another story all together!  When you nosy posters who jump in a thread decide to jump in and bash, why not pick an intelligent fight with the correct person?  You make no sense and look like more of a jerk than you obviously think I am!!  Sorry, too, not a blonde!  Black as the Ace of Spades - wanna fight about my hair??
Yah - a couple women got rich, and we all got -nm
That comment was very degrading to women.
Nagging, whining WOMEN!!!
Exactly why I choose to work at home!!!!
You said it! Women defined careers just don't pay
no respect.....men would never put up with the crap we do
Women in bathrobes unite! Puhleeze...
Men always minimize women's problems. I would DUMP

ahh com'on, peope (women) don't stitck together
I did note something on MTStars Job seekers, Transcription Express had an ad (I did not see another one a few below this one) but in the newer ad, gave her email and said use this one as she had no replies, guess she figured they did out go through on the board. So later I clicked on the first ad. It offered 7 cents (THUS, I would guess nobody was biting) HOO RAY) That is how to get the rates up but nobody will. Look how they accept 3-4 cents a line on VR. Pitiful.

Are you women or little girls? Free speech..
is just that. My opinion is allowed here as is yours; remember, they are OPINIONS.
HOW TRUE...from romance to finance, women are the first...
to sell each other out. At least men have their 'man code' even when it doesn't make great sense to me. The same man that will cheat on his wife would NEVER sleep with his best friend's wife...go figure.

Men will at least stand up and say I will not be treated like this and damn the consequences while women tiptoe around hoping things won't get any worse. My biggest problem is the corporate suits, mostly male, get this and do use it against us.
Again, lonely women in need of male attention, whether the guy's into females or not
but that's just me. THat goes for the so junior high comment below. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them immature. You have your opinion, I have mine. Deal with it.
Sure do agree with you WORKING women set a good example for kids and
SCHOOL and DAY CARE never replace a mother. A 2 person family with a stay at home mom does not make a great kid. I see messed up kids from stay at home families all the time, the wealthier they are sometimes, the more entitled and into alcohol and drugs the kids turn out. A child sees the mother providing for them and it makes them feel loved and secure. I do not want my daughter to be a stay at home mom. I was her to have a career and to always have confidence and to be able to support her family whether there is a husband or not. Not all husbands make enough to keep a family going. Some people are just very narrow minded.

of course men don't work for free; and they typically get paid better than women
and they are definitely jerks - all of them - they suck and they know it, and we are not impressed
E-zines, women and parenting mags, local newspaper.

I have a subscription to writersmarket.com to find places to submit, and there are a few market list databases at other websites.  I'm just starting out again myself after giving it up a couple of years ago.  The few articles I was paid for weren't worth much at all.  I've got a few book ideas I'm working on, too, but I never have time for it.

What have you done with your writing so far?  Do you belong to any writing groups or anything?

That is terrible. You know, those women have no idea how to handle all these big university accounts
that are moving up there. They are very very wrong about some of the things they do and it seems like they really dont know as much as they would like you to think they do. That is absolutely disgusting that they did that. I hope that MT reported them to anyone in New Jersey they could find. I would have taken that as far as I could have if I would have been her to the CEO. That is just horrendous. My goodness, why does MQ continue with them. I believe firmly if you make enough calls you will find someone that is willing to listen and take the info where it needs to go I believe that.
I wonder if you would be kind enough to tell me......
exactly what constitutes "good reason" for my home phone number to be given out to anyone by Lee as it was?

I'm sorry. I went to work and then had to come back to ask this question. I even looked up *confidentiality* in my Webster's trying to find the loopholes.

Thank you.
She was very kind
and all, but Lee or someone should know that she is misrepresenting herself. She should know that it's OK to say, "I am new to Keystrokes and feel that this is a great company to work for" instead of lying and saying "I have worked for Keystrokes for X amount of years and they are great" when she had only been working there a few days. There is no need to lie to people.
I am using one, but it must be the right kind
At some point, and I think it was when I installed Express Scribe, I could configure my footpedal. Try to do it, and if it won't let you - then you don't have the right kind of footpedal (it's either 9 or 13 pins, I can't remember which).
What kind of pay for V/R? nm
What kind do you like and what don't you?
Is is the work types, or the dictators? What I don't like are the long pauses in dictation. I have heard a couple of the dictators seem to hit a pause button, but most of them don't know how to do that.
What kind of changes? nm
What is the use of this? I have been getting this kind of
run around also, but why would companies treat MTs this way... no loyalty breeds no loyalty in return. I hate to say misery loves company but seems like more than we have had this happen. How to stop it is another question. IMHO.
Actually, I kind of see it although we
did it to ourselves. Suddenly, you were supposed to be Super Woman, it was the new version of Once Upon a Time. Get a degree, get a job, earn the bacon, fry it up in the pan, etc., somehow you end up being the one who gets the kids and hub up and out the door, taken to the doctor, drop off the dry cleaning, excel at work and keep a clean house and by the way, don't forget to look spectacular at all times. of course, if you are in a bad mood, your hormones must be at fault. Been there, done that, got the bumper sticker and the T-shirt which I now use to dust furniture!
you are EXACTLY the kind of sm
person I am talking about! Was there any point to that? I am not whining. I am stating a fact that there is no point in folks reacting to other people like YOU are reacting. Sounds like you are attacking! The ability to disagree and just down right nasty are two different things and you fit the latter.
May I ask what kind you have?
Maybe it's just Hughes, because my experience has been pretty crappy. I do know that an ex in Missouri had some little rinky dink company; he paid half what I did ($39) and had a signal that was twice as fast as mine and didn't seem to have the fluctuations. I assume that rinky-dink got its feed from one of the big ones but was never able to figure out who. There has to be something better than what I've got now, but few people even have internet in my area except some of the city dwellers with DSL(where populations get up to about 723!!!)
I have a car but if I said which kind
I am sure I would be called management which I definitely am not.
Thanks so much and that is what I was kind of
afraid of.  I applied for that one on the job board because of loads and loads of orthopedics experience but they want you to have Dictaphone or the equivalent.  I do not have Dictaphone and not sure that I have the equivalent, I have never worked on it so I am not sure what they are looking for.
Feels kind of right, what your saying
"The other troublemaker"
Sounds kind of
Well I did that kind of production too.....
Until going on the VA account. It's a whole other ball game and a totally different story.
What kind of problems
did you have with your LD service before you got Vonage? I am switching from Vonage to Verizon Freedom because I have been getting disconnected a lot and heard it was from Vonage. Hoping I'm not making a mistake.

That's kind of cryptic. What do you mean by that? TIA
What kind of accounts do they have?nm
what kind of proof do you want:?
and still have proof of it ALL after 2 years!  There will always be those who have a good experience at a company and assume that it is the same for everyone at that company.  Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is not the case. 
OK... I really want to see some kind of link here. sm
I don't believe this for a second. I believe this poster is just trying to stir things up. If this were really true, then the OP would have posted a link or would have provided the source of the information (the news source) so this could be verified. Otherwise, if no link/source is provided where we can verify this, I would just assume this poster is a troll.
What kind of experience do you have?
If you are having these kind of problems

I would have to ask why?  So many happy MTs getting their direct deposit every other Friday like clockwork, and you are having issues every payday.  Plus you mention checks, and we get DD.  I can not imagine having to call payroll every payday.

Thank you so much for the kind words!
I want to thank you all for your kind words SM

and suggestions.  It means a lot to me.  I'm a pretty optimistic person, so I believe something better will come along...but it feels good to share my frustrations with those of you who have been there, done that, and got the T-shirt!

I better go to work!  Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.

Just Me
