If you don’t live in an area with a smoking ban… this probably isn’t the thread for you!
I personally think the way they are treating smokers in several areas, is simply unconstitutional! Smokers are not a protected class, but in today’s
society, we should be!
Just for example… At the company I work for, they literally make us walk approximately 2-300 feet (maybe more?), through a gate, some days through 2
feet of piled up snow, with no walls for protection in the windy city sometimes below 20 degrees wind-chill…
Employers and companies have to accommodate for handicap, breast feeding, even fat people (I’m sorry obese people) nowadays… They should have to
accommodate for smokers too…
Being forced outside in some cases extreme weather conditions we should have a legally classified comfortable place to smoke! It should include
weather and element protection, seating, and proper disposal containers… This should be mandated and enforced!
