I've noticed, at my job at least, smokers take more breaks than non-smokers. Since my job is Union, if you work four hours, you get one fifteen minute break. If you work seven or eight hours, you get two fifteen minute breaks, and if you so choose, an additional thirty minute lunch/dinner break that is unpaid. What I've began noticing in recent weeks, now that it's getting warmer out, is that during my co-workers four or six hour shifts, they're taking one or two extra breaks; in addition to their sanctioned fifteen minute break. Why should smokers get more breaks than non-smokers? Does anyone else see something wrong with this? Has anyone else noticed this at your place of employment?
