Smoking Detriment to Employment

Not just jarming health, smoking also impacts job searches and salaries.

In an study reported in April’s JAMA Internal Medicine, smokers and non-smokers were compared regarding  access to employment and salaries.

Non-smokers who had lost their jobs, were 24% more likely to be re-employed after one year than unemployed smokers. After one year the average hourly wage for non-smokers was $20.27, while it was only $15.10 for smokers.
