Things are looking good for uglies
UGLY people are suing companies who refuse to give them jobs, saying they are victims of discrimination.
Already forming the basis of many court cases in America, experts say “lookism” will soon hit the UK.
Economist Daniel Hamermesh argues that ugliness is no different from race or a disability and even suggests unattractive people deserve legal protection.
He said: “My research shows being good-looking helps you earn more money, find a higher-earning spouse and even get better deals on mortgages.
“Some people are born ugly and there’s not much they can do about it.
“You’re pretty much stuck with your looks.
“Logically, there’s no less reason to protect the ugly than the disabled, Afro-Americans, other racial minorities or religious minorities, as we do. We could even have affirmative action for the ugly.”
