Here’s a gem we hope you’ll love as much as we did. A recent study by the Reason Foundation reveals the astonishing fact that people who drink earn more money than those poor souls who don’t. Between 10% and 14% more to be precise. Better yet, social drinkers typically have even higher incomes than people who stay home when they indulge.
According to the study, sipping at a pub or bar enhances your “social capital” which increases your potential of landing a better than average job. So how’s this quoted directly from the authors? “According to our hypothesis, drinking and socializing is a potentially productive investment that positively influences future earnings.” Right on.
And guess what guys, us women increase our odds even more than you – among full-time workers, men who drink earn 19% above their tee-totaling counterparts, women earn an additional 23%.
So cheers to the folks who just gave us yet another great “Reason” to pop a cork. Thanks boys and here’s to getting rich.
