    Mayor Targets Women To Fill Void in Construction Market - By DANIELA GERSON, The New York Sun
    She is a 21st-century take on Rosie the Riveter.

    'We're looking for a few good women,' posters Mayor Bloomberg's office has plastered around the city proclaim.

The ads tout: 'The average salary in the construction trades is $53,000.'
