Rob Williams: It Pays to be Tall

FOX19 - A new study from the BMJ medical journal found that men who taller than average made more money than men who are shorter than average.

The study says shorter men made $4,000 dollars a year less than taller men.

The average height for men is 5 feet 9 inches. The average height of all U.S. presidents is 5 feet 11 inches.  The average Fortune 500 CEO is 6 feet.

The study also looked at income disparity among women.  It shows up with their weight.  Women skinnier than the average American woman made about $3,000 dollars more a year.
