Amen! I started out as a secretary after I got a degree from a prestigious
university because a liberal arts degree and 2 cents will just get you a cup
of coffee.

I think you need to be very very careful when you talk about this,
and not
make assumptions about secretaries. There are secretaries out there
with
BA's from prestigious universities and even a few with PhD's ...
because
the job market sucks in certain fields and secretaries (especially
in the
legal field) get paid damn well. If you ever need a secretary to do
any
work for you, and you insult *them* while trying to set the record
straight, you'll find yourself in a bind.

If it's a single person, I suggest you talk to them privately. If
it's
from a group, then you have a problem with job identification in
that company.
