Comment on Atlantic City Casinos to Welcome Back Smokers Next Month by SHEILA


Smoking should be on a separate floor or in a completely closed separate room- such as an event room. Players and employees that want to smoke can be accommodated, but the casino is no longer forcing non-smoking employees or non-smoking players to be around it. You cannot just put in ‘sections.’ It is very obvious that the smoke drifts into the non-smoking sections. Also, the non-smokers know very well that their hair and clothes reek of smoke when they go back to their room. A non-smoker can not even re-wear a pair of jeans or a jacket without smelling of it. the casino should also put smoke alarms in their public bathrooms. People who smoke in there are causing a fire hazard on top of the fact that it’s gross. The casino needs to be fair to both sides-accommodating ALL of their guests as well as ALL of their employees. You can not make it a pre-requisite for the job: ‘willing to take a higher chance on getting asthma, bronchitis or lung cancer’.’ Second-hand smoke causes their employees to get sick more often, lose more days of work and go to the doctor or hospital more often-all of which causes the casinos costs to rise-both for the work days lost and the higher health insurance rates.
