Smokers taking 70 minutes a day off work for smokes

Smokers should be banned from leaving the office to smoke more than three cigarettes a day, employers say. Doctors have also accused smokers of ruining the image of companies by dragging on fags outside front doors of buildings. Research indicates two million employees (in Australia) smoke about seven cigarettes a day at work, spending on average 70 minutes off the job. Employers Chamber general manager, Ian Harrison said it should no longer be tolerated.
