Title: Handedness and earnings
Author: Ruebeck, Christopher S.; Harrington, J. E. Jr.; Moffitt, R.
Abstract: We examine whether handedness is related to performance in the labor market and, in particular, earnings. We find a significant wage effect for left-handed men with high levels of education. This positive wage effect is strongest among those who have lower than average earnings relative to those of similar high education. This effect is not found among women.
