Lefties just can't get a break.
They struggle to use scissors, have trouble finding a desk at school, and get ink all over the place when they write.
Now there's more bad news for lefties: They even earn less money.
According to Harvard economist Joshua Goodman, left handed people earn 10 to 12 percent less per year than their right handed counterparts. That's roughly the same gap created with an additional year of schooling.
"Lefties have more emotional and behavioral problems, have more learning disabilities such as dyslexia, complete less schooling, and work in occupations requiring less cognitive skill," Goodman told Bloomberg.
However, these disadvantages only apply to lefties born to right-handed mothers. Lefties born to left-handed mothers actually had fared as well as righties.
The conclusions come from five databases from the United States and the United Kingdom containing information on family characteristics, math and reading tests, earnings, and vocational aptitude.
