A ray of sunshine
« on: November 03, 2014, 03:27:20 PM »
One of our members was bitten by the "wellness check" for nicotine.  Honeywell is being sued by the government to stop such testing.

Seems like a company can give all kinds of excuses to test employees these days.  I still don't see how a person smoking is going to cause a problem on the job?

Given nicotine's well known and documented attribute for increasing one's concentration and cognitive abilities, I would rather folks in jobs like air controller and bus driving be smokers.  Or at least snuffers and chawers.  Is the reason so many pro baseballers chaw is that most of the time they just stand out there, waiting?

Well at least the EEOC, as they say of the broken clock, is right twice a day.  I have a friend in a position of influence at Honeywell - I need to gig 'em a bit.

I think they use military time at the EEOC, Speas.  So, it would actually be once a day.  ;)
