I start to worry, as my workplace and government become increasingly more involved in my life choices.

Four workers in the United States have lost their jobs after refusing to take a test to see if they were smokers.

They were employees of Michigan-based healthcare firm Weyco, which introduced a policy banning its staff from smoking – even away from the workplace.

But wait! There’s more:

According to Reuters news agency, Mr Weyers wants to turn his attention next to overweight workers.

“We have to work on eating habits and getting people to exercise. But if you’re obese, you’re (legally) protected,” he said

Yea. Legally protected. Gosh. That must really suck, not being able to fire somebody for being fat… legally.
