This is an awesome post. A lot of truth in this. I have two jobs. One very blue collar and the other job straddles the line. What you say is true.Women have somewhat unreal expectations surrounding job searches and job losses. It's not entirely their faults though, as women are rarely victims of job losses. Women with bachelor's degrees or higher working white collar jobs are unlikely to lose their jobs.
Women work white collar jobs more than blue collar jobs. This is relevant because the nature of job losses tends to be different in white collar environments as compared to blue collar environments.
In white collar work, there are few terminations for behavior reasons since white collar workers tend to not have attendance, behavioral, or other disciplinary issues. It's way more common for those in blue collar to have drug abuse issues, theft issues, attendance issues, or other things. In white collar work, there are occasional employee performance issues but that's often the fault of the employer for hiring someone who wasn't going to be a good fit for the job. That's also not even close to the majority of terminations in white collar work. The majority of terminations in white collar work are not the fault of the employee at all. The majority of terminations in white collar work are usually the fault of executive management of that organization devising poor business strategy and implementing that strategy through faulty tactics.
When there are white collar layoffs due to the ineptitude of executive management, they are often executed in a politically correct manner. White males are laid off first. Women are rarely victims of white collar layoffs. On the occasions where women are laid off, it is because the company is in such poor shape that they had no choice but to get rid of lesser performing women after ditching the non-protected white male class.
When women are laid off in white collar, they also have shorter job searches because there are diversity initiatives to help them get hired faster. This is true for both white women and non-white women.
I have had job interviews in the past where I passed over for hiring in favor of a female with lesser qualifications. It's easy to find out who gets hired when you don't for white collar jobs. You go on LinkedIn and see who was hired a few weeks later if you don't hear anything.
Blue collar job terminations are more often the result of the employee themselves, but can still happen due to inept management. Since women mostly don't work blue collar jobs, this doesn't affect them.
When a white collar man loses his job, he has a longer job search to replace the job. Additionally, white collar men get more of their perceived SMV from their income and a lot of them are boring, provider type beta males. Women ditch beta males when they have no utility to them. Beta males are useless when unemployed.
Blue collar males often don't have their SMV tied as closely to their employment, so they can get away with being unemployed and can keep their women attracted. Of course, the types of women blue collar men date are different than the ones white collar men date. You're not that likely to see a female lawyer dating an HVAC repairman. A female marketing or HR professional is likely dating some white collar guy and not an auto mechanic. An auto mechanic is more likely to be dating a woman who works at Walgreens at the store level than a corporate Walgreens person.
I agree with this assessment. 1.5 months is also nothing in a job search. There were people out of work 1-3 years due to the late 2000s/early 2010s recession. 2020-2021 saw a lot of 6-12 month periods of unemployment too.
Overall it's a pick your poison type of thing. Each sector has it's pros and cons. Blue collar jobs are easier to get and replace but the pay is often lower. The women you attract are often less high quality. But if you design your life correctly you can still thrive with a blue collar job.
I do have to reconcile the fact that due to my blue collar job I will never gain the commitment of a hot white collar chick. This is okay with me because I don't want their commitment. Their body is good enough.
I would also add that ageing is a liability in blue collar work. Ageing is not a liability in white collar jobs. An ageing blue collar Chad is done. An ageing white collar Chad still has status.
