 For Women, Maybe 'Tall' Is Linked To Your Pay Package
A new study has it that tall women, on an average, earn about 5,000 pounds more than their shorter colleagues - each year.

The study for Long Tall Sally, a clothes shop for taller women, showed that female staff over 5ft 8in tall have consistently more success in the work place, reports the Telegraph.

They are twice as likely to pocket a salary of 30,000 pounds or more.

On average, they take home 5,000 pounds a year more than their colleagues under the benchmark 5ft 8in height.

For those over 6ft tall, the chances of being in a managerial role increase by 80 per cent, and women over 5ft 8in earn an average of 530 pounds extra per inch, per year.

The study found that 20 per cent of tall women credit their stature as giving them empowerment and authority.
