You know you can't smoke in the workplace, but some places are banning the smokers themselves! Delray Beach, Florida, flat-out won't hire workers who use tobacco products. That means smokers of cigarettes, cigars and pipes, people who use chewing tobacco, and those who like the occasional pinch of snuff- none of them will be hired for city jobs.

Smokers who already have jobs with the city won't lose them, but because they cost more in health and disability insurance, they have to pay higher premiums. Current smokers will also be offered free smoking-cessation programs. *Is it fair for the city - or any employer - to say they won't hire smokers? *
