I have been using this example a lot.
Trust me when I say more people smoke than most think. I bet 50% of the employees of most companies, especially labor positions are burners.
So John smokes. Been on the job 5 years. Earns money. Pays taxes.
He gets pulled for a random and fails. He is fired.
Now that's a strain on other employees cause they have to make up the slack.
Now the company has to interview and hire.
Now instead of John making money and paying taxes he is going to go get some food stamps and Medicaid. So now the state is essentially paying him.
How did it benefit anyone by firing him?
Should we talk about how the tests are a joke now anyway? 90% of the 50% that smoke carry synthetic urine on them. They get pulled. They pass.
This is no secret.
You think employees don't know This?
You think the nurse that takes the sample don't know this?
Of course they do.
It's a joke.
Nobody is being helped by these drug laws and employment regulations related to them.
Now can we talk about why it is perfectly fine to drink a 30 rack on the evening and go to work next day? Totally fine.
Can't burn the night before though.
Now can we talk about the millions of people that are throwing back opiates or benzos before work and it's fine as long as you have a script??
Just cause you have a script that don't mean you are responsible and take as directed.
You don't think people that have a script for Vicodin dont go on the curb to score extra?
Or the people that crush their Percocet and rail them off the toilet at lunch?
Their prescription is their legal out.
It is crazy man. Nobody is benefiting from this system.
