‘Men At Work’ signs to disappear in Atlanta

It seems that women’s magazine editor Cynthia Good has too much time on her hands….

Work” or “Men Working Ahead.”

Sometimes, the signs stood next to women working alongside the men.

Good demanded Atlanta officials remove the signs and last week, Atlanta Public Works Commissioner Joe Basista agreed.

Score one for gender equality, Good said Wednesday.

“They get it,” Good said about the city in a telephone interview.

Public Works officials are replacing 50 “Men Working” with signs that say “Workers Ahead.” It will cost $22 to cover over some of the old signs and $144 to buy new signs, said Public Works spokeswoman Valerie Bell-Smith said.

Good, founding editor of Atlanta-based PINK Magazine, a publication that focuses on professional women, said she’s not stopping with Atlanta.  From AJC.com

This is stupid and a waste of tax payer money.  However, a commenter of the AJC.com website has the perfect – and possibly most truthful – suggestion as a replacement for “Men at Work” – “Lazy people leaniing on shovels ahead”………  One thing I can say for Good, she managed to get free publicity for herself and her magazine.  Or was that her intention all along?
