Urine Test

URINE TEST

Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem. What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ASS, doing drugs, while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though . . . Something has to change in this country -- and soon!

I've never had a job where I had to pass a urine test to get paid.  Seems like if you do the work they have to pay you.

My mother didn't pass the drug test for the Postal office because she drank tonic water and it contains Quinine.  She hadn't claimed it on her medication form.  She didn't know.  Anyways, I think you are right, we should pass drug tests.

hugs,  Bethe

If they tried to do that the ACLU would be all over it and imagine how much money would be spent on legal bills by the state.  That is the way a bureaucracy works.  Take care and hope you passed LOL.

I think that just about anyone and everyone has to take one of those tests from time to time.  You have a point about the people receiving assistance having to do that.  But Phil has a point too.  Oh well, no perfect answer I guess.  Just suck it up and do it . . . pee on demand!  LOL  Have a happy tomorrow! : )

Wow. Good point . I never thought of that. I don't have random drugs tests at work but I did have to pass one to GET the job in the first place.

I think if this were the way, alot of people would be clean , that's for sure. Or go hungry/homeless.

Be well,
Ellen

hey, i agree. But you know they can go get some powdered urine for about $50 in Ohio, at least, and mix it with their pee and that powdered urine cancels out the crack or heroin or weed or whatever and then they keep getting that free check. Some on public assistance are damn smart.
