How many female road construction workers have you observed this season?

I often state I only see women holding signs. Well, last week along my travels, I saw a woman sitting on a sheep's foot roller. So, my count for the season is 1 non-sign holding female construction worker. Why aren't there more of them working the equipment? Running the hydraulic levers can't be overly physically demanding, can it? I would think those equipment makers want to ensure the equipment is easy to use for long durations.

Zero. A princess should NEVER have to work hard and get dirty in the sun.

'equipment operator' is an EXCELLENT job. i would suppose that most of the time a 'brother in law' gets it. "it's not what you know, it's who you know".

3, and as you said, they were all holding signs. One of them looked like an illegal immigrant. So really, I have seen only two American women.

Hmmm, lemme look at my tallysheet. ...Looks like 3. Though 10 could've gone either way I just couldn't tell.
