Job Discrimination – The Battle of the Bulge

How many obese/fat/huge/big boned/ people are being discriminated whilst applying for jobs in South Africa and perhaps this is a problem all over the world?

Obese people are regarded as less productive and lazy even though these are people with the same or perhaps even more qualifications than that skinny chick in the corner.

I have come across job applications online where people ask for full length photos along with their applications, like wtf?

In all my years I have worked along side many different body types and I peronally found that us bigger ladies usually work harder than those skinny bitches and perhaps it’s because we have to proof that even though we pack a punch…..pun intended, we use our brains to work..
