According to a new and really disturbing infographic from OnlineMBA, beautiful people come out on top once again. Even though some companies’ HR departments are discriminating against hot women, this chart shows that once they get a job (and they will), they will be just fine.
The chart shows that women who are 70 pounds under average weight get paid the most ($62,500.) 70 pounds? That’s like two Suri Cruises! For men, this is the opposite. The smaller and skinnier you are the less money you will make. A man who is 70 pounds over the average weight will make more money. In the end, beautiful people will make $230,000 more over the course of their lifetimes. My goodness. Maybe the Kardashians had it right all along.
We had known from other studies that makeup can make a woman seem more competent and attractive people do tend to make more money but this weight issue is especially disturbing. What is interesting is that this study points out that people who are more attractive may have had a better upbringing because their parents were more attentive (less attractive children don’t deserve to be buckled into a shopping cart apparently) and teachers were less likely to scold them. Oh this just gets worse and worse.
