  • Hopefully the overweight woman seeing as how she was better suited for the job.

  • The skinny person. Employers/people tend to think good-looking people are smarter. I actually learned this in sociology years ago!

  • The skinny person--because they are more "esthetically pleasing"....advertising is all about what looks "better". It SHOULD be the woman with more/better qualifications though.

  • the overweight person seeing as you said she is more qualified..i also think that the overweight person would get it because if the only reason she didnt get the job was because of her looks, she could sue for harrassment.

  • I read about this before. It was proven the skinny woman would be hired. That is sad but true
