Weekend HR Advice: Go Drink


Just in time for the weekend, a study is published that confirms what many of us know:

A couple of economists found that people who drink in a social setting earn 10 to 14 percent more than those who save their drinking for home. More specifically, female drinkers earned 14 percent more than non-drinkers and male drinkers earned 10 percent more.

I’m glad to know that my time spent in lame-ass bars — drinking overpriced martinis and feigning an interest in Tom Friedman’s social & economic theories — will pay off in the end.

To think I could have been at home & watching television instead of faux-networking my way to a 14% pay advantage!
