Letter: Tech who?

 

I enjoyed the detailed map and article highlighting inequity by county across the West (“The wealth abyss,” December 2021). However, the use of the moniker “tech bro” is unnecessarily inflammatory. Does employing this negative connotation serve any useful purpose? Do women not also work at tech companies? Good empirical research on inequality in the West is needed, but dog whistles in its analysis are not.
