World Ends -- Women Hurt Most
A new study reveals that women who work long hours are more likely to eat poorly, smoke and do other bad stuff. But men, the study found, are just fine.
"Women who work long hours eat more high-fat and high-sugar snacks, exercise less, drink more caffeine and, if smokers, smoke more than their male colleagues," said Dr. Daryl O'Connor, a researcher at Leeds University.
"For men, working longer hours has no negative impact on exercise, caffeine intake or smoking," O'Connor said in a statement released by the Economic and Social Research Council, which funded his study.
One can see the clear Catch-22 here. Our employers tend to reward hard workers, but we like good looking, hard workers. Since the hard working women are fat, high strung, and smelly from smoking, they don't get the promotion. The good looking women are of course not working hard, so they don't get the promotion. That leaves only us men, who thankfully are not judged so harshly on our looks.
God is good.
