Hot Server Index

Heard this at the bar and thought this was an interesting theory: The better looking a wait staff is at an establishment the deeper we are in a recession. The theory is (right or wrong) that attractive people are usually hired first. To phase it another way if two equally qualified candidates apply for a job the more attractive of the two will get the position.

So the more attractive the servers are means the softer the corporate job market since they are waiting tables because other opportunities don’t currently exist.

Now I am not saying that wait staff should be ugly or that there is anything wrong with serving I mean you got to do what you got to do, but then isn’t that the whole point of the theory?
