Letter: Drugs and jobs do not mix

Drugs and jobs do not mix

On June 7, Heather Rutz’s column was about the problem employers are having trying to find people who can pass a drug test.

In Saturday’s paper the report of an operator of a piece of heavy equipment in Philadelphia is charged with six deaths at the job site. Marijuana was found in his system.

This is just one incident. When will people understand if you want a job DO NOT do drugs. If you want to keep a job DO NOT do drugs. If you do not want to potentially hurt yourself or others DO NOT do drugs.

For those of you who think your rights are being stepped on let me say this, party hearty dude and watch more jobs leave this country. It shouldn’t bother you, you’re stoned, right?
