Haiku My Heart is done weekly on Fridays. Friendly people gather and share. Each week a reunion. See more at Rebecca's blog entitled recuerda mi corazon. (If the link doesn't work, here is the URL to cut and paste) http://corazon.typepad.com/recuerda_mi_corazon/

My heart soars with pride
Values born from example
A brave new leader
It’s my youngest daughter. She’s changing jobs. It’s a daunting task anytime, but especially in this day and age and at this time in her life with financial concerns and a rising, but still unsteady, economy. But she’s doing it, and standing by principle to do so. I’ve changed jobs a few times myself for the same reasons. I never looked back and I don’t think she will either.
She wasn’t treated fairly at her workplace. The large corporation allowed the man in position of authority to treat women employees differently, even though my daughter was part of the management team and of equal status. The money wasn’t paid equally as if she were a male of the species. The big boss from Chicago was a sleaze ball and acted as if he was her friend as he groped her with a so-called friendly hug. Male vendors paid her no respect and often went over her head, even though she was the department head, to get what they wanted, sometimes dishonestly.
Her last name is Spado. She’s my kid. She told me she learned what is right from me and made up her mind based on the idea that she had had enough and she just wasn’t going to work for people that allowed other people to be treated like that.
Pretty damn cool, isn’t she?
Peace to all.
