    There are a few here that would struggle to pass a drug test........


    I say without any doubt in my mind.
    There is a conspiracy..........the oldest known to man.

    Look, it's as clear as day.

    Same thing here. Joy Mining Co. wanted 12 entry positions. This could lead to a relatively safe, good-paying job with benefits...something many in this town could use. By the time the 6th-grade level entry exam and drug testing was complete, they had TWO qualified applicants. Of the two, one didn't show up his first day.

    So out of 12 good opportunities, only ONE person here was willing and able to work. We can blame DC and politicians for our woes all we want, but when unemployment is at 10% and only 1/12 of offered jobs gets filled......

    Good night Gladys!

    many restaurants in Calif have quit using drug tests for hiring because very few can pass them, because of the nature of the test many have flunked it due to the use of OTC drugs like Sudafed...not sure what is worse using drug tests to screen applicants or using TRW credit ratings as one infamous hotel chain does here in Vegas...ironically I got my job with Morton's because I was one of two that COULD pass the test

    While I personally believe that 99.99999999999% of people that fail drug tests do through nothing but their own illegal activities I do know of a case in which while the person did technically commit illegal consumption of a controled substance, there was no drug abuse involved.
    The person invloved (in their 50's) simply took some RX cough medicine given to his wife when he caught the crap going around. bad timing for him as it was during a buyout and everyone had to take a drug test for the aquiring company. She had some leffover and he took it and failed the drug test because it contained codiene and that is a controled substance.

    bon....

    you mentioned not liking credti scores used by employers....

    I for one think it is a pretty reasonable way to find out if someone is responsible. I see your credit score as the GPA of adulthood. Sure somepeople might get caught with abad credit score due to factors beyond their control, just like the drug tests might catch a few folks that took their wifes prescription for a cold, but you can be poor and have good credit, you just can't be irresponsible. If I am looking for employees, I want to have people that have proven that they cn take care of their own lives/finances if they are going to have any impact on mine.

    If its not your prescription, don't take it. Its ILLEGAL.

    No sympathy here. Sorry.

    Go to the Dr and get your own.
