When I was at school, every class had its token fat kid. When we left school we sought gainful employment competing with the other school leavers for those jobs available.
Nowadays, every school class is loaded with fat kids. Likewise, they seek gainful employment on completion of their studies. Unfortunately for them, opportunities are limited for fat people. I accept that that some vacancies do exist for circus freaks. There are also the occasional slots on reality shows, so that there are enough funny bloopers for the condensed highlight shows. They also make the pretty people look better by comparison.
There isn't much else they can do with there limited ability to move and poor sick records. It comes as no surprise that the unemployment rates are rising. What else can they do?
More fat people = Increased unemployment
