So I went and looked at the article, I'm not quite sure how you've leaped from: they are looking into the nz model, and this is what nz do, to: this IS what is going to happen. It's a pretty vague article, it says nothing at all really, gives no idea of their plans, just a mention of overhaul and cutting back. Ill stand by my view still.
I saw a post else where about Florida trying this, and it cost the gov. Something like $178 million to implement the testing, from memory over a 12 month period. 98% were clear, and 2% failed. In that year the tax payer saved 60,000, but spent 178 mil to save it. We pay for it no matter what. We are lucky to have a welfare system, look at countries that don't have it. Maybe if they weren't spending billions of dollars on cold seam mining that would save a penny! And the earth possibly?
I haven't read any responses but I say yes!!! I know ppl who proudly fraud the system and enjoy being "drug bludgers"....no care for a real life.

"those who do not work", what does that even mean - there are plenty, plenty of educated non drug addicts who are finding it very tough to get a job. Plenty. I live in a regional area, that also has a uni, jobs are very thin on the ground at the moment here.
