He told them what happened and they were not interested in letting him retake it. Employers who look at the results of these tests as gospel are freekin' idiots.
G'mornin to you as well.
It's bad enough to not get a job over something like this, but a person might not have gotten the job anyway. Competition for work is tough. If it weren't, and employers were having a hard time filling positions, you would see drug testing in the workplace stop too.
It's a totally different story to deny someone basic human necessities. Even if the person actually is on drugs, I don't see how that justifies starving someone to death or letting them die of exposure.
Back to drug testing in the workplace though... An acquaintance of mine was driving a lumber truck with a class A CDL and got into a wreck. Mandatory drug test for CDL drivers involved in a wreck. His company tested too, but on this particular day it was the police who did. He came up dirty even though he did not use drugs. The likely cause of the dirty test was that he was a regular Mountain Dew drinker.
