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."

Who is more likely to vote? Unemployment or welfare recipients?Even though the number of people is far larger of welfare recipients, ( in some form ) I,m guessing more unemployment people will vote. I'm talking numbers, not %. I believe economic issues are very important to unemployment people...

Can you believe it? The government may have actually underreported the real number of unemployed and underemployed.FYI, that last part is bunk. The real reason the "official" numbers are lower is because the only numbers reported are people who are receiving unemployment...

Why is it considered unconstitutional to drug test welfare recipients?With all the talk in the media they make it sound like it is a "Right" to do drugs. What part of doing drugs is in the constitution?
