I’m still waiting for MSNBC to report on the added cost of employing gay men. Is it okay in the MSNBC world to refuse to hire gay men because of their much higher medical expenses (ignoring the ick factor)?
How much more a year do jerkball liberals cost an employer; who have to constantly remind each other that everything is George Bush’s fault, who have to discuss how the puddles in the gutter after it rains are signs of climate change, and how we must be sensitive to the lesbian, gay, and transgendered illegal single mothers who are only looking to better themselves; and think they are entitled to spend their employer’s time & resources tweeting each other to make sure they catch ShaLayLay doing the Harlem shuffle on their smartphones while Kim Kardashian pulls small, endangered birds out of her asscrack? How about that study?
i call BS.
“It’s only only wrong when you discriminate against people who are different through no fault of their own like their race or a disability.”
So Hooters should be forced to hire me to wait tables? Not my fault I have a penis and no breasts...
Our whole traffic department smokes. There are four of them I think they blow about 6 man hours a day, between them standing out in the parking lot.
Plus their section of the office smells like an ashtray.
I call BS on this study. How the heck can one calculate 6,000 dollars more anyway. I grab recklessly grab a smoke every so often and I’ve never cost an employer any more money in twenty years. Unless smokers are taking breaks they shouldn’t be for 30 minutes to an hour a day to smoke when they should be productive I don’t get it. However, people slack off in all kinds of ways.
How does that cost compare with those who engage in high risk homosexual sex that can lead to HIV and AIDS?
If a business or the government is going to be selective based on personal choices that are harmful or detrimental to a person’s health isn’t it discriminatory to consider certain conduct but ignore other, more politically correct, conduct?
Also, since the major factor was lost productivity, couldn't you just solve that by letting smokers smoke at their desk?
Total crap. Pretty soon you’ll see “gun ownership among employees costs employers $1000000000000 more to ensure”
Anymore this is not an employee/employer problem. Since Obamacare has been dumped on us, this is now the Government’s problem.
And we should expect the gubmint to target smokers and over-eaters any minute.
Meanwhile the queers with their unhealthy and dangerous lifestyle... They get a pass.
There must be a cheaper way to smoke employees. Mesquite wood, perhaps?
I once worked with a retired Navy chief that smoked a lot. By a lot I mean almost every minute he was awake, sometimes he’d have one it his mouth and another one still lit in the ash tray. Then they banned indoor smoking and he was running outside every 15 minutes. People complained about all the breaks he got but I didn’t, actually stuck up for him. He was the most tech savvy guy we had and still worked circles around most.
If an employee does what you require there’s no reason to bitch. BTW I absolutely hate the smell of cigarette smoke.
What about those who practice sodomy? Alcoholics? Multiple sex partners of the opposite sex?
More agenda driven junk science. Guess it depends on what you call a cost and what you don’t.

When my husband was sick with cancer, I had him in four different placements - 3 different hospitals, one physical therapy/retirement facility. Each one had NO SMOKING ON CAMPUS signs everywhere. At the physical therapy place, a patient caught smoking would be expelled.
It was all lies. All those places had a location for their employees to smoke. I would become a friend to an employee, then ask where I could go smoke and that person would tell me where it was or take me there. At that point, I was “in”, I was one of them and I was the only outsider in those smoking areas.
The physical therapy smoking area where patients would get thrown out if they smoked, was the nicest.
In one of the hospitals, a nurse told me where they went to hide out and smoke - no one could see them there. In another hospital, the nurse told me where a spot was that was considered “off campus” and I could smoke there.
Those places issue no smoking orders to people coming in, but they don't go by that rule themselves. I infiltrated every smoking clandestine place in every hospital and that physical therapy place. After I did the first one, I made it a personal goal to find these hidden smoking places.
Casting stones? As if everyone doesn’t have a vise or is somehow different from the person next to them. Next it’ll be eye color or left handedness or outie belly buttons.
My question is: how much does a gay employee cost the employer?
Actually if the person the owner doesn't want is Muslim or gay I am sure it must be discrimination...
