June 2008 FYI – IT Workers Getting Fatter

A recent study shows that 34 percent of IT workers have gained more than ten pounds in their current jobs. When I read this article, it really wasn’t surprising to me. Back when I worked as a contractor, my contracting rep picked me up for lunch in a new Cadillac. I asked him why he got a new car, and he said that he had to get a bigger car because most of the guys that worked for him couldn’t fit in his old two-seater Mazda!
