Martini Glass Ceiling

[index] [9,511 page views]

A new study published in the Journal of Labor Research shows that employees that engage in social drinking earn between 10 and 14 percent higher wages than their non-drinking counterparts. Economics professor Edward Stringham states quite simply, "social drinking builds social capital." The study indicates that men who drank socially in bars stand to earn an additional 7% as well. This puts women at a further disadvantage towards breaking the glass ceiling as they already earn 6.8% less on average. Studies demonstrate there are a variety of factors at play in estimating prospective salary wages. Job performance aside, however, a solid education still pays more (up to twice as much) in the long run than the lesser factors of social drinking or being male.
