"In the United States, smoking remains the largest cause of preventable disease, disability and death. Smoking not only threatens employees' health and well-being, but also results in decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, and increased workplace maintenance costs. Smoking hurts the U.S. economy."

"Smokers who are out of work are less likely than nonsmokers to find a job and once they do, they earn less, researchers reported. Smoking is a cause, and not an effect, of not getting hired. Smoking costs the average smoker $8,300 a year"
