PC or Not-PC, that is the question...

Hoping a progressive friend can illuminate this…

From an Atlantic article about manufacturing returning to America:

“Many factory managers say openly that they prefer women: women, they say, learn new jobs faster, handle high-precision work better, and pose fewer disciplinary challenges.”

On the one hand, it seems to praise women’s work ethic.  On the other hand, it’s almost certainly describing a low pay, high stress, thanklessly repetitive labor. So are you saying “Women are better than men” or “Women are absolutely the best… when you need to order someone to perform the most menial work you’ve got.”
