Q is for Quality Control Inspector

Currently men dominate the quality control profession making up 66% compared to 34% for women. A quality assurance (QA) or quality control (QC) inspector works for a company to inspect, test, and sample materials, parts, or products for defects and any deviations from specifications. The inspector will discard anything that does not meet with company standards, including products, materials, and equipment used by the company in processing. Sounds like something a woman could do with her eyes closed.
