Quit smoking or quit work

That smoking isn’t the best thing you can do to take care of your health is no secret. Smoking do cost, both money and health – but who should pay for it? Not Weyco, at least:

Weyco founder Howard Weyers said previously that he instituted the tough anti-smoking rule to shield his company from high health care costs.

“I don’t want to pay for the results of smoking,” he said.

The result of this policy? Four employees were fired for smoking.

The question now is: Will more companies follow suit?
