Algo me diz que a Ana gostaria de trabalhar na Florida. O clima é ameno e fala-se algo semelhante ao portuga. Em Ohio é mais frio e não se fala espanhol...

Surely your company has gone smoke-free by now. If you're one of the nicotine-stained masses, you're braving the November chill to get your fix outside, like an animal. (Why is it that smokers always head out coat-less, no matter what the weather?) Only at home can you puff away to your blackening lungs' abandon.
Get ready to give up that right, too. If you live in Florida, your employer might already be demanding that you stop smoking at home. That's right: bosses are forbidding workers to smoke at all.

Westgate Resorts, the largest private employer in Central Florida, has banned smoking and won't budge from a policy of not hiring smokers and firing employees who do smoke.

"When I found out it was legal to discriminate against smokers, I put the policy in place," Westgate president and CEO David Seigel said.

"If you are too stupid to understand that smoking is going to kill you, then we are going to tell you that if you want to work for our company, you will not smoke," Seigel said.

Seigel said his policy is cost effective and said since it went into effect, health insurance claims have gone down significantly -- making insurance more affordable for employees.

Westgate, and Florida employers, are hardly the only ones zeroing in on smoking by employees. Scotts Miracle-Gro in Maryville, Ohio, was the subject of a February cover story by Businessweek titled "Get Healthy—or Else."

Não percebi o salto geográfico entre a Calabria e a Florida. Seja como for, o David Seigel, não é visita cá de casa
