Sometimes it pays to be fat

Being tall can really have its advantages, for a new study has found that the taller you are, the more you earn. What’s more, overweight people earn more than their skinny workmates, the study found. Australian researchers have found that a man who is six foot can expect to take home a "wage premium" of almost 1000 dollars a year.

Similarly, Fat men earn 5 per cent more than their trimmer colleagues. And thin women don''t earn higher wages.
