Pop the Champagne! Study Shows Those Who Drink Earn More

Just what we needed for a long work week—a study reporting the positive effects of our weekend consumption. Reason Foundation—a public policy think tank—reports in the Journal of Labor Research drinkers earn 10 to 14 percent more money at their jobs than nondrinkers!

“Social drinking builds social capital,” said Edward Stringham, Ph.D., an economics professor at San Jose State University. “Social drinkers are networking, building relationships, and adding contacts to their Blackberries that result in bigger paychecks.”

If you are going to imbibe do it in moderation. Alcohol packs calories, in fact one Long Island Ice Tea has the same number of calories as a Big Mac! Instead, choose calorie-conscious drinks like a glass of Champagne, at only 91 calories per glass it’s a tasty choice!
