MN smoking bans continue closing bars and restaurants as local hospitality unemployment figures continue to increase

State unemployment figures can be found here.

There were 1,2oo additional job losses in the hospitality sector in September 2007. The last time Clearing the Air posted hospitality job losses was to report the loss of 2,100 jobs in April 2007 as reported by MN State unemployment figures.

MN smoking bans have eliminated 137+ hospitality businesses, it's a fact of life that those business losses will add to the state's number of unemployed hospitality workers.

But let's not let business losses and unemployment increases get in the way of a perfectly engineered social agenda.

It's funny, but I don't hear the American Lung Association of MN, the American Medical Association, Minnesota Non-Smoker's Rights, MPAAT / ClearWay MN, or any of the other Nicoderm funded lobbyists telling us that smoking bans are good for business any longer.......they reserved that false claim for politicians (prior to the bans of course).

Any lawmakers out there willing to admit they were lied to by the rent seeking lobbyists? Perhaps not, but only because they knew it was a lie when they first heard it in public testimony.
