‘Smokers who get sick should earn less’

Some 25% of workers think colleagues who smoke and are often off sick should earn less than non-smokers, according to a survey for BNR radio and health insurance group CZ.

Last year, only 18% said smokers should get less pay.
Some 12% also think overweight people should earn less, up from 8% a year ago.
