NEW YORK (NBC News) — A new study suggests smokers may have a harder time finding a job than their non-smoking peers.
Researchers came to that conclusion after tracking a group of unemployed adults who were looking for work.
They found one year later, smokers were 24-percent less likely to have a job than non-smokers. That number did take into account their age, education and overall health.
The study also found smokers who did find work averaged five dollars less per hour than non-smokers.
The study was led by researchers at Stanford University and published in ‘JAMA Internal Medicine.’
