STRIKE ONE — Skinnier paychecks
Obese women earn about 6 percent less than thinner women for doing exactly the same work, according to Rebecca Puhl, PhD, director of research at the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale University. "That wage penalty has been consistently documented," she says. "It's pretty bad." What's new is that males don't take nearly the hit. A study just out from George Washington University breaks down the penalties as follows: Among the obese, the annual cost is $4,879 for a woman and only $2,646 for a man. Among overweight employees, the numbers are $524 versus $432. "This disparity is attributable mostly to lost wages and absenteeism," the authors write. But Puhl notes that being stigmatized about your weight makes you much more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, and to resort to unhealthy behaviors, all of which may impact absenteeism. "It's a vicious cycle," she says. "And women are the most vulnerable."

How much? Puhl's team published studies in 2008 showing that discrimination is not only three times more common in obese ladies than gents, but it starts at lower weights. "We're observing this around a BMI of 27 in women," she says, referring to a "body mass index" that would, for example, describe a 5 foot-5 inch person weighing 162 pounds. In men, discrimination doesn't start kicking in until they are at least a BMI of 35—same height but 210 pounds.

It's really not the 'same' work when it comes down to it though. The cute thin woman is expected to dress better, always take care of the things that come up involving being charming and in front of any kind of group or audience or pr crap, have hair done extra nicely, makeup always perfect, not to mention cover the shifts when the heavy people go home sick excessively or don't show up.

Being the on-call 'frontman' goes with being thin and cute.
