The odd tipple could improve your earnings

Far
from jeopardising their careers with ill-advised boozy remarks and debilitating
hangovers, drinkers are more likely to climb the career ladder and earn more
money.

New
research from a Scottish university has found a correlation between social
drinking and getting on in the workplace.

A
team from Stirling University’s economics department has found that moderate
drinkers will earn an average of £13,780 a year – £2,000 more than their
teetotal counterparts.

However,
the research stresses that only moderate drinkers are likely to earn more and
once a drinker exceeds the Government’s recommended amount, earnings start
going down.

The
study has looked at the lives of 17,000 people born in 1958 and compared their
fortunes through life.
