Governor Corbett Blasted For Comments On Employer Drug Testing

May 1, 2013

Governor Tom Corbett has touched off a heated debate about job applicants and drug testing through his recent comments on the Radio PA News program, “Ask the Governor.”

While discussing Pennsylvania’s 7.9 percent unemployment rate, Corbett said part of the problem with joblessness in the state is that employers continue to insist they cannot find potential workers who can pass drug tests.

Many Corbett critics immediately responded that the remarks are both insulting and out-of-touch.

Meanwhile, the executive director of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association says the scandal does not derive from the governor’s comments, but from the fact that what Corbett said is true.  David Taylor said many employers find they must implement zero-tolerance policies for safety and insurance reasons.
