This article from over the summer from a plant in Wisconsin provides the example where the plant has to bring in robots becasue they cannot get people hired to actually do the work due to laziness/ drug failures.

I've seen a few articles, it's just a little hard to believe (and doesn't align with what I see, granted anecdotally.)

It also seems like maybe it's a way to justify going to robots, at least in this article.

I have never had a company tell me they are having trouble filling jobs because of failed drug tests.

Not sure what type of companies you are dealing with, but it is a MAJOR problem of every business/employer we talk to.

Good luck finding the amount STEM graduates that are needed when you have easy degrees in all genres of humanities that younger students are chasing after, which pretty much guarantees that students will only be fit to be tenured in some college.

In a press release, the National Association of Manufacturers (12/11) announced that on Monday, it “released the results of the Manufacturers’ Outlook Survey for the fourth quarter of 2017, showing manufacturers’ optimism has risen to unprecedented heights amid the legislative progress made on tax reform.” The survey found “94.6 percent of respondents saying they are positive about their own company’s outlook,” meaning, “this quarter’s optimism level is the highest in the survey’s 20-year history.” The release further noted that “optimism has been at historically high levels throughout the year, averaging 91.8 percent in the four quarters of 2017, up from a 64.3 percent average in 2016.”

CNN projects Moore loses.  Premature?

He lost, because the GOP are a bunch of dumb fucks. That’s what you get for screwing up one of the easiest states to keep seats. Way to go Bannon and McConnell.

And blowing this to Doug Evans to boot.

Evans will get destroyed next time he is up for election. The only saving grace of this is that Moore is gone which is better for 2018 (for the republicans). Still could see the Dem take over the Senate in 2018.

The Roy Moore watch party is currently so so cringey. Two people are on stage and awkwardly singing hymns.

He lost because he dated a 16 year old as a 35 year old.

and even as a GOP guy, I’m glad that creepy fuck lost.

Yea, agreed. My point was it should have never got to Moore running. Their governor and other republicans fucked the race their up from the beginning.

LOL. I'm assuming they had a large prayer circle when he officially lost, to beg God for forgiveness for allowing a dirty Democrat to beat him.

If the GOP from the beggining said "hey vote for Moore, we can't have a dem take that seat.  We will make sure Moore is replaced ASAP.  We don't GAF about Moore, we care about the seat." I think people would have voted for Moore.  Honesty would have gone a long way.    They didn't have the balls to do it.

Great victory for Alabama.  Roy Moore and his religious fanatacism would have been a disgrace to the USA.  I believe Doug Jones will be an excellent senator - we shall see.  I am very proud of my fellow Alabamans.

Isn't the seat up for election in 2 years?  If I am a betting man, that seat will go back to the GOP.  It shouldn't be too hard, but the GOP loves to have their "hold my beer" moments.
