Women in construction [Letter]

July 18, 2014

Regarding Barbara A. Res' recent commentary on women in the construction industry: Just so you know, we're out here ("Construction: a boys club," July 13).

I own and operate a 1.5-woman electrical contracting firm. I'm not sure if I'll make it, but I've been in business four years.

I am listed as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise by the Office of Minority and Women Business Enterprises, but it does me no good because I'm so small.

Your article is not news, and from what I hear they are taking away the quotas for women.
