Mugshots of the day: People who look like Santa
Here is today’s 20 Minute Trivia:
Q… According to a new study if your company’s CEO has one of these your salry could drop by around $200 a year …. What is it?
A… a baby boy.
According to a new study by the University of Maryland and Columbia, your salary could depend on your boss's CHILDREN.
Workers at companies where the CEO's wife has a baby see their salaries DROP by zero-point-two percent on average . . . or one five hundredth. That doesn't sound like much, but it works
out to about $100 less a year.
If the CEO's first-born child is a BOY, people see their salaries drop by zero-point-four percent . . . or about $200 a year. Women see their salaries drop by less. Experts say it may be because fatherhood changes a male CEO's view on women.
So if you find out your CEO's wife is expecting, you should root for her to have a baby GIRL. When the CEO's first-born is a daughter, employees actually get a RAISE.
Male employees get a zero-point-six percent raise, while female employees get a 1.1% raise.
Q… Guys if you are below average when it comes to this, it could cost you over $30,000 this year… what is it?
A… Below average in looks.A new study out of Melbourne University in Australia found that the BEST asset a man can have in his career is GOOD LOOKS.
They found the average handsome man surveyed makes $85,900 a year. The average unattractive man surveyed makes $52,100. That means the good-looking men make $33,800 more every year than the ugly men. OUCH.
The researchers say that with women the effect is smaller but harder to measure.
When a woman's good looking, she might run into the stereotypes that hot women just CAN'T be that intelligent, so it hurts her salary. Since there's no stereotype that says good-looking men can't be intelligent too, it helps their salaries.
The survey also found men with below-average looks are 15% less likely than all other men to be employed. They were also less likely to be married. YouThink??????
