Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH): Businesses Can't Find Enough 'Sober,' 'Drug-Free' Workers



Rep. Dave Joyce On Unfilled Jobs: Businesses Can't Find Enough 'Sober,' 'Drug-Free' Workers

WASHINGTON -- The economy and jobs continue to dominate discussions lawmakers have with their constituents during the August recess, as many Americans are still out of work and worried about their next paycheck. In a speech to a local Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, Rep. Dave Joyce (R-Ohio) argued that part of the problem is that there are millions of jobs that remain vacant each month.

"There's 3 million jobs every month in this country that go unfilled," said Joyce in his remarks to the Stow-Munroe Falls Chamber of Commerce. "Believe me, the Plain Dealer already fact-checked me on it because they couldn't believe me. They thought I was lying, and they actually came up with a higher number than 3 million."

"And the trouble is, it's because they either can't find people to come to work sober, daily, drug-free and want to learn the necessary skills going forward to be able to do those jobs," he added.

3. Two solutions: 1) More immigrants; 2) Drug test politicians for sobriety on entering to vote.

How many of them are stumble-bums after 3-martini lunches and a bottle of wine each at dinner?

In any case, when there is a labor shortage, then obviously you need more workers and equally obviously there is a huge pool of them eager to immigrate in and work hard. Harder than Dave Joyce ever worked.

Any guesses if Joyce will go for either solution?

Any guesses if Joyce has a more workable solution? Any solution at all?

4. So everyone in is district

are drug addicts and drunks. Wonder if the people that vote for him will realize he's calling all of them drunks and dopers? I would vote for a guy that calls me a drunk and drug addict.

Well, it should be his district in the header.

5. Sober, drug-free, able and experienced workers are out there.

The problem is that you aren't willing to pay for those sober, drug-free, able and experienced workers, sir.

6. Businesses don't give a crap whether the potential employee is sober or drug free

they just want to be able to hire someone for very low wages.

That is all.

They aren't embarrassed enough to take it down, just enough to make it friends only.
