I have to take a drug test to be employed, shouldn't people collecting unemployment be held to the s
I have heard this question posed before by a friend and I agree with the sentiment. I think it's fair for both groups to be drug tested.
Yes, I agree. And I think more importantly welfare recipients should be randomly tested as well. Life is difficult for sure, but everyone should be held to the same standard. What about our elected officials...they should not be excluded either.
Not to duck your premise, but drug tests are expensive and who is going to pay for them? The cost of unemplyment insurance is high enough for us and our employers. I'd rather have the extra money in my pocket to spend on what I want.
You can only collect unemployment benefits if you have worked and paid into it along with your employer. In today's economy, many people have been laid off through no fault of their own. They need the unemployment insurance benefits.
I understand where you are coming from and in many ways I agree, but I don't want even more money taken out of my check for "drug tests."

Former senator Alan Simpson thinks so. I happen not to agree. My mother existed on a small savings account and could not have survived without social security (which she paid into her entire working life.)
