When I worked at a major grocery chain all the hot female co-workers would move up the ladder by banging their way through. The ugly guys and social weirdos they would throw on the night shift.

Most wealth is centered around average looks.

I think "good looks" only help with service industry jobs like restaurants and retail. And in those cases only certain restaurants and retail.. usually trendy spots.. but the pay isn't much better than the average joes at walmart.

But good looking for men. Often means tall. Most CEO's are tall or at least able average. I think most lawyers would be considered attractive.

It's pointless to argue about it. Studies show that good looks and height in men equates to more success

So every tall and good looking man on the man is successful?

Why would you even make an absolute statement like this? It is obviously not true, and those of us who value accuracy and actually solving problems will discount everything else that you have to say.

I have never heard of including a photo with a job application, unless you are applying to be a model, porn star or some other function where they only care about your appearance.

Because it's true. Don't call yourself a good employers when there are 23+ million out of work.

Studies may show whatever, but your "thinking" that most lawyers are attractive or most CEOs are tall isn't a fact

It's only pointless to argue if you can't validate your assertions with links to legitimate studies (and I don't mean the kind you find in rags such as Cosmo)! I've known (and know) literally dozens of CEOs who are shorter than average and I sure as heck know dozens of lawyers who wouldn't qualify anywhere near the top of a "good looking" contest.
