Unhealthy workers cost employers money

It was in The Christian Science Monitor that I saw this article. Some workers rights groups would consider any employer making unhealthy workers pay more for health care an invasion of privacy. Although I don't believe that employers have the right to do this, I do , however, agree with their reasons for doing this.

For the most part, I don't view obesity as a disease. Obesity is a choice that is made. A person who is overweight made a choice to be that way. They chose to be inactive. They chose to drive everywhere instead of walking or riding a bicycle. They think that they have to drive, when the truth is most of them would be just fine riding.

If more people rode their bikes to work instead of driving, not only would they feel better about themselves, they would be healthier and would feel better about themselves.

There are other benefits to this. One of the most obvious is not having to use expensive gasoline. It would also be less strain on health care costs, as well as the employers pocketbook.

I enjoyed reading some of your posts speeddemon0117. I was looking for bf goodrich tires related information and found your blog. I have a bf goodrich tires site. You'll find info on atv tires as well as most major brands of vehicle tires such as Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Cooper and more. With winter here, you can also get winter tire and tire chain recommendations for your vehicle. Come and check it out if you get time :-)
If you have a site similar to mine and would like to exchange links, please contact me through my website.
