New Book Says Ugly People Should Be A Protected Class

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Have you ever felt your looks have affected your life?  A new book called, "Beauty Pays" claims ugly people just have it tougher. 

University of Texas economy professor and author Daniel Hamermesh said, ugly people could make $230,000 less over their lifetime, versus their better looking peers.  He said if a majority considers someone to be ugly, then, he probably is.

But some people take issue with the book.  Rina Stermilla said, "I definitely don't agree with it."
Stermilla is a financial planner in Jacksonville.  She said in her business, looks don't have anything to do with money.  "The ugliest ones have way more money than the pretty ones."
