REPUBLICANS STILL JUST DON'T LIKE THE UNEMPLOYED

The Washington Monthly: "South Carolina's more than 236,000 unemployed workers could have to take a drug test in order to receive jobless benefits, according to a proposal by Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley on Tuesday. [...]

Though employees fired for using drugs, alcohol or missing work can be disqualified from jobless benefits, Haley said testing the unemployed was one of several steps in ensuring the newly restructured Department of Employment and Workforce -- now a cabinet agency -- only pays benefits to those who have earned them.

'We will make sure, above all, that there will be no ... benefits if they do not pass a drug test,' Haley said."
