Apparently fat people, in particular women earn less if they are fatties:
First, the obesity wage penalty exists even in countries with national health insurance, so lower wages cannot be solely the result of employers’ reaction to higher costs in the health insurance plans they sponsor. Second, there is a negative relationship between weight and wages for women even at weights that are too low to be associated with worse health. Third, experiments have found that obese individuals are less likely than healthy-weight individuals with identical credentials to receive job interviews and positive performance reviews.
Labour has a maori quota, a gay quota, a women’s quota, perhaps they need a fatties quota too and a policy to stop discrimination against fatties. Nanaia Mahuta and Parekura Horomia can share the portfolio.
