  • The employees or GM, Chrysler and the financials are already drug tested. Most are tested before the are hired.

  • I would imagine those companies already require drug testing for employment. Many I know who believe welfare recipients should be drug tested use the example that those with jobs usually need them why not those who are collecting money for not doing any work. I personally don't think they need to be done I do think the system needs to be revamped and be a help to get people back on their feet and not something that hinders that.

  • And if you consider Tarp, we paid for it for many many corporations.

  • And if you drug test welfare recipients and find a positive, what then? Now the government has an obligation to rehab them. Who pays for that? What if the recipient has a positive, the government doesn't help and he dies? Does the family have a lawsuit lottery ticket on their hands because of negligence? Aren't they already " wards of the state" so to speak? They couldn't take care fo themselves so the govt took over, but left them with a known drug problem. It all gets to busy after a known positive, even with employers, the obligations are too high in the legal arenas. I would think the government would want the welfare recipients with abuse problems to stay is almost a form of population control. JMHO

  • Jewjewbee, me too, jobs yes, AND IN SAYING THAT, could we just be a mite bit pickier about what jobs are created, Let's face it, we are all going out to restaurants, and it's a no brainer job, for minus the poverty level, so in all sincerity, if you just want to give people something to do that's ok, but to only give them a tip if they smile the exact way you "like", or bring the extra salt, and cracked pepper when you put on the aires, and if it's not back within 22 +1/2 seconds theirs no tip. People please. For the sake of life, it is really time to get, .......*****JOB the..... word***** entirely as it's applied------------to the proper pay level , enough said.
