Lefty Men Have Something More
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne, with congratulations to left-handed men. Not just because this Sunday is International Left-Handers Day, but because a new study shows southpaws are richer than righties, 15 percent richer for left-handed men who attended college, and 26 percent richer if they graduated. Researchers at Lafayette College and Johns Hopkins University can't explain the wage difference, and they don't know why women lefties don't have the same advantage.
