i was reading onine articles for my essay topic, and study shows that good looking people earn more. less attractive people earned, on average, 13% less than more attractive people. while the penalty for being overweight was around 5%. so in conclusion, people who most likely earn more are ...prettier? "Certain characteristics, such as appearance, might affect productivity in ways that are not as easily measured (or as obvious) as are other characteristics, like education or experience," what do you guys think?

Yep, If your hiring people the one most likely to get the job is the hot one even if the others are slightly more educated. Its a selling point for many companies, Mcdonalds hires many hot chix and so does supre. I'm quite sure no one would go into supre if there was an ugly fat chic serving. They do the same at night clubs too!
