Drug Testing for Unemployment Benefits I don't like the sound of this. :irked: It's a little too 'Big Brother' for me. Plus what about those who do fail the test? Being ineligible for unemployment benefits for one year is very harsh. Remember unemployment comes out of your paycheck so you are keeping their own money from them. More importantly, where do those people go? How do they live? Do they end up in jail, since local authorities will be notified? Yeah, that will save the taxpayers money . . . NOT. :angryfire2: I'm not condoning drug use, but this law has some serious problems.
