Would You Prefer to Work for a Man or Woman?

Posing the question, would you prefer to work for a man or women strikes me as treading in dangerous territory.

Sadly, Sexual Assaults Hurt Everyone In Canada

Sexual assault is anything but uncommon and like it or not, it affects us all. It's not only a moral or ethical issue -- it's an economic issue that has not gone completely unnoticed.
