Jan Brewer Wants Drug Tests In Arizona Job Training Programs
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) wants enrollees in the state's job-training programs to prove they're not on drugs.
A recent executive order creating a "Workforce Arizona Council" designed to review the state's job-training efforts calls for the board to "adopt policies that will require persons enrolling in a taxpayer-funded job training program to be drug-tested."
Brewer's office did not respond to a request for more information about her order Wednesday.
Two other states have recently had job trainees pee in cups to prove they're living clean. In each state, the test results suggested unemployed workers in job training actually live a lot cleaner than most people; less than 1 percent of jobseekers had used drugs.
