There are jobs, good jobs, going wanting. Jobs that don’t need a Tech Degree, nor sometimes even a high school diploma. Just people who will work, and be clean and sober while doing it….
Yet they can’t find workers to fill those jobs.
Because most applicants can’t pass the drug test requirements.
(and, of course, if they are “out of work”, why, the Federal and State governments will GIVE ’em Free Money, Free Food stamps, Free phone, Free rent, Free heath insurance).
And those ‘Benefits” don’t need a Drug Test. Why is that?
People make their choices. We make their choices not have consequences. If you want more of something, subsidize it….If we Drug Tested applicants for government aid, we’d reduce our budgets and FORCE folks to either be clean, or starve. Either way, our country would be better off.
