Description

Dateline NBC's undercover investigation reveals the discrimination that overweight people experience when applying for jobs. Dateline paired up several overweight people with "average" weight people (with almost identical qualifications) and sent them to look for jobs. The results revealed that although the discrimination is subtle, an "average" weight person is more likely to receive the job rather than an overweight person. (March 17, 1995)
