I'm getting a raise...

… well at least CNN.com thinks I’ve earned it.

According to
a study from The Journal of Labor Research, those who drink in a social setting earned more than those who tipped a glass at home.

Female drinkers earned 14% more. Men drinkers earned 10% more and they can tack on another 7% by going to a bar at least once a month…. (This, sadly, was not true for women.)

How you ask does drinking do this for you?? Well, it increases your social capital. You have more connections, you relate better to people and you have greater charisma.

It seems I’m on my way to making six figures. I'll raise a glass to that. Cheers!
