Survey: 1/3 of manufacturing job applicants in Pennsylvania disqualified due to drug testing
from Scranton Times-Tribune
One-third of all applicants for good-paying jobs in Pennsylvania's manufacturing sector are ineligible due to drug use or avoiding a drug test, according to a new study commissioned by the Pennsylvania Manufacturers' Association. The survey of 200 manufacturing business executives focused on their companies' experience with drug testing and its impact on their workforce. The results indicate drug use by both potential and current workers. Meanwhile, a blind survey of 15 members of the Manufacturers and Employers Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania, or MAEA, shows about half of those surveyed dispute that figure.
