This was on our local news this morning - should make for a good debate today......



Illegal drug users could lose unemployment benefits

A state senator is expected to introduce a bill that would require all Hoosiers applying for unemployment benefits to sign a drug-free agreement.

A state senator is expected to introduce a bill that would require all Hoosiers applying for unemployment benefits to sign a drug-free agreement.
State Senator Jean Leising said Indiana businesses have complained some job applicants are unqualified for work because they fail drug tests.
"In employers' eyes as well as many Hoosiers' eyes, there is something wrong with the system if unemployment applicants are able to receive taxpayer money that may, in fact, be used to purchase controlled substances and lead to them being unqualified to work," Leising said. "This is an issue legislators need to review."
Senators will hear and vote on Senate Bill 86 this legislative session

how much will it cost me to get other people drug tested? will it save more than it cost? or will the money spent equal out only to have wealthy people making more and unemployed dopers trying to steal from me. its all shit and there is no good solution, well im off to work.
Ive never been on unemployment, but reasonable healthcare would be nice.
