Is It Just Me, Or Are Waitresses Getting Hotter?


The Hot Waitress Economic Index is one of the indices numbered in this link from the Young Fogey — Seven bizarre trends that predict an economic collapse. The "incredibly reliable, vaguely sexist indication of how the economy is faring... goes like this:"
    In our often unfair society, really attractive women are unlikely to work as waitresses, as they have an easier time finding other, better-paying jobs (we're not saying it's right, we're saying it's a statistical truth). When the economy goes belly-up, attractiveness isn't as valuable as actual skill, and attractive people get laid off just like everyone else -- so they temporarily drift back to a job that doesn't require schooling but offers great tips if you have a nice smile. When the economy picks up again, they return to higher-paying jobs.

What I want to know is what happens to the not so hot girls who get displaced?

And those girls are so hot, why aren't they married?
