    Link: PA Governor: Lack Of Job Growth Due To Drug Users - He thinks that one of the reasons jobs aren`t being filled is because people fail drug tests.

    is it still considered failing the test if i never get called in to take one much less get an interview?

    some areas just need more funding and resources. some areas just need to be less racist. some areas just need for people to pass their drug tests...there are a lot of different factors at play.

    If I had a company, I would never hire most of my undergrad graduating class considering how ubiquitous drug use was. And not even just marijuana, which many of them consider as having "no catch". Ecstasy, cocaine, LSD...now I know why it was so easy for me to get into grad school at the Ivy League. There is just no competition.

    Sorry, Gerry, the idiot that was ranting (Tom Corbett) is NOT a liberal.

    I don`t know anything about that guy other than being annoying as hell, but the point that he illustrates is true.

    The governor is an idiot with this perspective on unemployment.

    ...or maybe drug use shouldn`t disqualify anyone from holding a job in the first place. Just a thought.

    worst thing Gerry is that Corbett is a conservative Republican governor. He`s still better than the previous one.

    Really annoying show host.

    @Cajun247 - It really depends on the frequency of use.

    It really depends on the frequency of use.

    That ONLY matters if it is frequent enough to actually impair the employee`s ability to do the work. The sad truth about people who fail drug tests is that such impairment never occurred in the first place.

    I`d like to know which industries can`t get employees due to failed drug tests. Corbett has to go. Act 100 is bust. We can see him painting Corrections into a dangerous corner.

    So, is the problem the drugs or the drug tests?

    If you can`t tell if your employees are doing their jobs without resorting to chemistry, maybe you shouldn`t be running a business.

    So the fact that there are no jobs available is being blamed on the fact that there`s no one who could pass a drug test to get the jobs in the first place so why bother.

    If that isn`t the crowning achievement in circular conservative logic, I don`t know what is.

    was it intentional that the closed captions were turned on. Reading that was as much fun as listening to the Governor
