Mandatory Drug Tests

Millions of businesses require people to take drug tests before they are hired. I believe that this should keep happening. Jobs that don’t require drug tests have the risk of insurance problems, the health of their employees, how it affects their work, and how they treat customers and other employees. Drugs alter the way your brain processes information and makes you think differently than you normally would. They can sometimes make the person not care what they are saying and they can be so rude to people and not even know that they are. This could cause the worker to mistreat the customers and it could cause your customers to not come back. It can also affect the way they are towards other employees and if your other employees aren’t happy they could leave and you would only have the ones that are on drugs and don’t do good work. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and when people are on drugs they treat people differently and they won’t respect them. When a company hires someone that id on drugs they put their self at risk of being sued if the employee was to get hurt. People on drugs don’t seem to think things through and they will get hurt easier. The company could get shut down and even be fined for letting people on drugs work in their business and it could cost lots of money if they were to get hurt because they didn’t know they were on drugs and didn’t know that their mind was altered. Drugs can be a major risk. The quality of the work that individuals do when they are on drugs could not be as good as if they were sober and working in their right mind. Customers always expect the best quality products or services. If the customers aren’t happy the business will not be good and they will have to close and the owner will not be able to pay for their bills or keep their company going. Because without customers there will be no company or anyone to buy their product....
