In the old days, it was true that some jobs were mostly done by men and others by women. For example, some jobs required a lot of physical strength, and men usually have more of that. But times have changed and so have jobs! Heavy work has long been done with machines. Working with machines requires knowledge, not brutal force. Thanks to this, people now have equal opportunities in the labour market. Nobody can be told what specialty they can or cannot choose because they’re a woman or man, or because of old prejudices.
Let’s see how Tiina made her dream come true.
Tiina is a young woman who wants to learn to be a builder. She successfully passes the admission exams. The exams are followed by an interview. During the interview, one of the teachers tells Tiina that she should choose another speciality. The teacher thinks that construction still requires a lot of strength. Some of her fellow students don’t think Tiina will be able to do construction work in the future either. Tiina isn’t easily scared off. She stands by her decision. Tiina knows she has the right to choose any speciality she wants. Tiina is good with computers. She knows how to handle the smart machines of today. These skills are also very useful in construction work.
Tiina becomes a good builder.
