Thin women earn more, but thin men earn less up to the point of obesity:
The Wall Street Journal reports that in looking at the differences of earnings between men and women of different sizes, the study’s author discovered significant gaps. Women who weighed 25 pounds less than average-sized women in the sampling earned an average of $15,572 more. On the other hand, a woman who weighed 25 pounds more than normal-sized women made $13,847 less than their average counterparts.
Thinner men were just as unfortunate as heavier women, earning $8,437 less than average-sized men.
