    I never heard a real coon ass say boo. They say beb for sweet heart and shâ for dear.

    Boo is what they say in the ninth ward.

    What do you mean by 'equality? -- your response is sort of confusing.

    Then, you've never been around real coonass...

    Actually, "beb", is a variance of, "babe", and, "cha'", is short for, "mon cheri".

    Looks like you went to New Orleans on a do-gooder mission and learned just enough to make yourself look like a dumbass...

    Drug tests for small to medium employers generally cost in the $50-$70.00 range, including collection of the sample, laboratory analysis, services of a Medial Review Officer, and communications of the results in the manner most convenient to the employer.

    Executive Summary

    The value of the full package of welfare benefits for a typical recipient in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia exceeds the poverty level. Because welfare benefits are tax-free, their dollar value is often greater than the amount of take-home income a worker would have left after paying taxes on an equivalent pretax income.

    •In 40 states welfare pays more than an $8.00 an hour job. In 17 states the welfare package is more generous than a $10.00 an hour job.
    •In Hawaii, Alaska, Massachusetts, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, New York, and Rhode Island welfare pays more than a $12.00 an hour job--or two and a half times the minimum wage.
    •In nine states welfare pays more than the average first-year salary for a teacher. In 29 states it pays more than the average starting salary for a secretary. And in the six most generous states it pays more than the entry-level salary for a computer programmer.
    •Welfare benefits are especially generous in large cities. Welfare provides the equivalent of an hourly pretax wage of $14.75 in New York City, $12.45 in Philadelphia, $11.35 in Baltimore, and $10.90 in Detroit. For the hard-core welfare recipient, the value of the full range of welfare benefits substantially exceeds the amount the recipient could earn in an entry-level job. As a result, recipients are likely to choose welfare over work, thus increasing long-term dependence.

    I'm thinking the answer just might possibly be yes .... good idea E-dude

    ^^^^^ A standard drug test with an ETG/ETS panel (detects alcohol use up to 80 hours after ingestion) costs $40 with a three day turnaround from Redwood Toxicology, maybe less if you get a volume discount....
    I think that is worth it, especially if you do it on a 'random' basis...
