Female Employee Quota

The other day, I went to visit one of my annoying customers (90% of my customers are annoying to varying degrees). Any, what is somewhat peculiar about this customer is that this customer is in Naour which is very close to Marj Al Hamam, and to Amman in general. I would even consider this customer inside Amman. The peculiar part is that this customer has over one 100 employees and not a single one of them is a female. So when I was there annoyed at this fact, that was when it hit me; why doesn't the government have a law that specifies a quota for women workers just like they did for the lower house?

I can already see problems in the implementation, especially in areas where companies do not have their own buses and the public transportation service to this area is poor.

Well for starters, the government can start with a very small quota, something like 5-10% for companies with more than 50 employees. Additionally, the Government need not fully implement such a project. It can start with a pilot project in the Sahab industrial zone, or something of sort.

One of the other hurdles that could face such an endeavor is the that fact that we are in the 21st century, and still some families prohibit their daughters from engaging in any sort of work or even seeking employment.

This is a very sorry state of affairs. But the Government has to start somewhere. And that somewhere is with a quota system.
