Do you think people who are tall, slender and attractive earn more money?
Asked at Hastings, 1900 W. 23rd St., and on Massachusetts Street on April 8, 2005
“I think so, because the world is a sex-driven place. If two people are equally qualified, the more attractive one will usually get the job.”
“No. I don’t think so. Most Americans are overweight anyway, and plenty of ugly people are making plenty of money.”
“In some ways it does. Some people just seem to hire more physically appealing people.”
“I could see how that might unconsciously affect someone getting hired or earning a larger salary.”
