From the Paper:"Mandatory drug-testing in high-risk fields is essential to ensure the safety of both employees, consumers, and those in the area who are unrelated to the transaction but nonetheless would be affected by a mistake. Within the airline, construction, and transportation industries, this testing is of particular necessity. While there are those who disagree with the tests, considering them to be invasive and at times unnecessary or inaccurate, the government ultimately supports their institution in such industries and also of state and federal employees. It Pennsylvania v. Transport Worker's Union Local 234, it was ascertained that the state could subject those employees who hold safety sensitive positions to random urine and breath tests to determine the presence of drugs or alcohol."
