Being Overweight Can Lead to Discrimination at the Workplace

Most of us know it's illegal to discriminate against someone because of race or gender, but did you know there's no law that protects people who are overweight?

According to a new study, weight discrimination happens at the workplace and on the streets just as often as race discrimination, and in some cases even more then age and gender discrimination.

The study also states that overweight women are twice as likely to be discriminated for their weight then men.

How do you feel about this study?

Do you think there is a major problem with weight discrimination in your area?
