Do you work somewhere that allows employees to smoke whenever they want? As you can imagine, all those smoke breaks throughout the day really add up.

According to NBC25, A Japanese company has started giving its non-smoking employees extra paid leave to compensate them for their co-workers’ cigarette breaks.

Tokyo’s Piala Inc. now gives its non-smoking staff six extra days of paid holidays annually after they complained about the firm’s smoking policy.

I'm surprised more companies don't do this for their non-smoking employees. Think about, If Chris Monroe smokes 8 cigarettes a day, that adds up to around 45-60 minutes every day. That's nearly 5 hours a week that is dedicated to just smoking! If you really do the math, it's insane how much time smokers waste during work.

I don't smoke so I really love the idea of this...seems fair to me.
