Do Non-Smokers Deserve More Days Off Than Smokers? [POLL]
A subject that has been argued in the past, but is again catching the attention of both employers and employees, is whether non-smoking employees should receive more time off than their smoking counterparts.
The argument over the extra time stems from the belief that smokers work less because they take extra breaks to smoke while non-smokers continue working. As the number of people in the US who smoke declines, it's becoming easier to single out the smokers who seem to take more breaks than everyone else.
A survey found that a significant percentage of non-smokers feel they deserve three to five extra days of vacation per year because that's how much more time they were working versus their smoking counterparts.
My question for both smokers and non-smokers is this. Do non-smokers deserve more time off, and if so, how much?
