We’ve talked on this blog before about the dangerous spread of discrimination against smokers spreading in both the US and the US.
Discrimination which has lead to smokers being barred from hospital rooms – even when they are not smoking – being fired from their jobs and losing custody battles over children.
But here’s one from earlier this month which I missed – and it’s one of the most extreme example I have seen.
Employees of one company in the US wll not be hired EVEN IF THEY THEMSELVES ARE NOT NICOTINE USERS.
If tobacco is detected in the prospective employee’s system – no matter whether that tobacco comes from living with smokers or using a nicotine patch – the person won’t be hired, said the health system.
Only one of the calls was negative [about a smoking ban] and that person was a smoker.
Smokers of all races are a filthy underclass of people and should be ignored on health issues because they are obviously horrible decision makers.
