Glass Ceiling ( Bigots Rule)

John has been in the same job for 36 years. He is an expert in his field and is world renowned in that field.

Some years back, his boss retired. Everyone assumed John would take over. They brought someone in from outside. That didn't work out.

Again they brought in an outsider. That didn't work either.

Now they have another outsider. When the boss is away, and John is with him, it is John who knows the answers and does the talking.

John does not have the boss's job because John does not have a wife.

It upsets me that they would treat him in this fashion. Never mind the financial costs to him of their bigotry, the personal cost and humiliation is bad enough.
