BSA Stops Hiring Smokers

Starting today, Baptist Saint Anthony's Hosptial will not hire anyone who smokes.

They say it's because non-smokers makes more productive and healthier employees.

A federal court in Texas says it's perfectly legal to hire only non-smokers.

It's a growing trend. An anti-smoking group estimates 6,000 businesses nationwide refuse to hire smokers. That's up from about 1,000 two years ago.
