The drug czar’s getting kind of lazy with his “blog.” Apparently somebody decided that they should post something today encouraging people to get involved in drug-free work week, which
begins began… Monday.
Shoot, only one week to be drug-free, and we’ve already missed half of it.
That got me wandering around some of the Department of Labor pages on the topic and I ran into something I hadn’t heard before. Apparently, the Department of Transportation has a new rule, as of August, requiring certain drug testing situations to utilize mandatory direct observation collections.
What does that mean?
Direct observation is a procedure that requires a same-gender observer to â€œwatch the urine go from the employeeâ€™s body into the collection container.â€ […] The direct observation rule also requires that immediately prior to all direct observation tests, employees must raise their shirts above the waist and lower their lower clothing to allow observers to verify the absence of any cheating devices.
Now there’s a job for you.
What kind of a sick society are we breeding?
