Swedish scientists have recently found that adolescents with overweight problems may have low wages in the future, unlike their peers. According to the observation, when applying for work, such people receive about 18 percent less than other workers.
A Recent study by the Swedes showed that people who have a larger body weight often experience discrimination, including in financial terms. Scientists analyzed the data of almost 150 thousand people who served in the army from 1984 to 1997. It turned out that those guys who were overweight at the time of service, subsequently earned 18-20% less than them peers with normal body weight.
Scientists believe that in addition to discrimination, low self-esteem of overweight people should be noted, which can also cause low income and lack of motivation in the work.
