  • Nice interview Justin, it went very well. I find it interesting you have delved into workforce economics. The only comments I have are non gender specific in regard to earnings. I recommend individuals analyze how they want to spend their career by what they have the aptitude, skills, abilities and intellect for. That may or may not end up being a well paying profession (regardless of gender) – however, compensation isn’t only monetary. Additionally, due to life circumstances, some people will never feel they have the option of ‘choice’ when it comes to a career. They will toil away the years in low paying manual labor jobs out of family obligation from a young age – kind of like being in a well and not being able to see the way out. This typically happens more in under served households and families where education is not highly valued and encouraged.
