This is just so unreal, that someone can't get a job because they smoke? Give me Break, costing companies more money on health insurance! (if they do smoke, they pay enough a month for insurance, what is the difference?) But if you have a Great Person for the job there hiring for, and won't give them a job because they smoke, so they hire a cheaper worker, and pay them less? Not really fair is it? And alot of companies now, which I agree with, make smokers go in there cars or off the property, and that don't effect the stupid people who say second hand smoke is going to kill me! (just looking for a lawsuit, that's all)
But with all the health issues NOT TESTED or looked upon on hiring someone, Diabetes, Obesity, HIV,Alcoholism, etc, and a good site to go to is [www.sa.psu.edu
Not sure about the USA, BUT as it's going, NOONE has rights no more! And that is really sad! And very scary!
