Win $100,000 from Dockers - Wear the Pants
So, this is interesting. Stats are now showing that not only are women catching up with men in the workforce, we're actually usurping them. Atlantic Monthly and U.S. News & World Report recently tackled the issue, citing the economy as one of the driving factors for this phenom.
While I don't believe any one gender should "Wear the Pants," I do think this contest is a pretty cool thing to get people back in the game. And I'm going to give Dockers the benefit of the doubt that they just used the line because it was clever and not because they think men should be the boss of me. Nobody's the boss of me...
Check it out!
