I'd get another job. They'd change if they didn't have employees, too. Job market isn't that tough right now, I've turned down 2 job offers since Jan 1st, and have an interview next week. I can understand jobs much above $45k-50k being hard to find right now, but anything below that isn't tough.The problem with bars is that the relatively low-income staff often doesn't have a lot of other economic choices about where to work, and that may mean you've got a choice between a sick/hungry kid at home, or exposing yourself day-in-day-out to smoke in order to make tips to support the kid. If it was just the patrons killing themselves with smoke, I wouldn't have so much of an issue with it.
