The SmokeFree Atlanta campaign is a coalition of community partners working to ensure that all workers are protected from secondhand smoke exposure. While some folks will say that they can find another job if they don't like the smoke, we know that jobs are scarce and that people will sacrifice their health to keep a job. Georgia has one of the top 10 unemployment rates in the country....job hopping is not an option for the working class. Every worker deserves a healthy, smokefree workplace.
