Company mixes up commuters' gender on Metra passes

December 24, 2009 (CHICAGO) Passes printed for the month of January and distributed by the employment benefits program Wage Works are all stamped female.

The passes are imprinted with the gender of the owner to prevent people from passing on their tickets to others.

More than 5,000 passes are sold every month through Wage Works.

It's not clear how many men will get cards that indicate they're women.
