As if there weren't already enough hurdles for women in the workplace, a new study suggests that the size of a woman has a bearing on the size of her paycheck.
The study comes from the Journal of Applied Psychology published in the fall of 2010. Findings show that women who are “very thin” make $22,000 more than their “average weight” counterparts. And, at the other end of the scale, “very heavy” women had a salary downwards of $19,000 compared to average weight workers.
Men were also included in the study but, not surprisingly, there wasn't nearly as strong a correlation between their weight and their income.
I guess it's salad for lunch from now on for those ladies looking for a salary boost.
