National have claimed that 1 in 5 beneficiaries are too stoned to pass drug tests and that’s why they are pissing away $72million in more draconian welfare penalty reforms for drugged up beneficiaries.
1 in 5?
1 in 5 beneficiaries are too drugged up to pass drug tests?
Isn’t 1 in 5 a lot when you compare it to the testing regime that shows lest year...
Last year, there were 31,791 referrals for drug testable positions nationwide and just 55 sanctions for failing a drug test, according to Ministry of Social Development (MSD) figures.
…just 55 out of 31, 791???
If the 1 in 5 number is correct, wouldn’t that show at least 6, 358 beneficiaries failing rather than a mere 55?
So where did Anne Tolley get this number of beneficiaries too stoned to pass a drug test?
An ‘anecdotal’ WINZ survey with no statistical merits whatsofuckingever to justify blowing $72million on a problem that doesn’t actually exist?
Is this what NZ has been left with?
This shit smearing hateful bigotry that has no actual empirical proof to back it up?
This is what 9 years of National has left us with, spiteful social policy drowned in stereotypes that have little basis in fact.
The question is how are 43% of the country still voting for this fuckwittery.
