Engines of upward opportunity for woman and minorities:

As millions of Americans dine out this Valentine’s Day, new research from the National Restaurant Association shows that nearly 50 percent of restaurants are now owned by women. The research also shows that restaurants employ more minority managers than any other industry, and that Hispanic restaurant ownership has increased 42 percent in the past five years.

Once again, in my view these people are “making things.”
