After careful consideration, our team has identified the overarching problem Permalco faces as employee dissatisfaction due to engagement issues. Employee engagement expresses the extent to which employees bring energy and commitment into an organization.

These authors observed that a glass ceiling functioned in a way that affected not only its victims, but also a firm's productivity.

In addition to this, the ways in which the female sex worker is deemed as problematic is seen as related to intrinsic characteristics of her personality, or tied back to early trauma and past experiences. It is seen as impossible that a sex worker would fall into their occupation out of choice, and instead there is always some reasoning offered for how a person could fall so far down the ladder that they are (supposedly) forced to sell their body in exchange for economic resources. This comes out of the assumption that this line of work is dirty and not desirable, something that puts the woman in danger, and something that can never be considered a valid form of employment (CRM 2307 Class Notes: March 14th). All sex workers are seen as being a certain ‘type’ of immoral woman, who has lost control of her life. However, these assumptions are ignorant to the diversity of individuals that is present not only in conventional occupations, but also within sex work.
The women 's movement faces the dilemma of the ceiling glass, and it is inevitable as Casey Hayden and Mary King explain in Sex and Caste: A Kind of Memo published in 1965.
