David Munro started this petition to ABC

The Australian Government has raised the question again for Newstart recipients to be drug tested. The issue was first raised when people who worked in different industries thought it wasn't fair that they faced drug and alcohol testing but people on Newstart could take drugs and still get paid. 

The argument that drug testing of workers was required to make workplaces safer and people didn't operate in impaired states. This is important in many industries as it's known people who are impaired by drugs can make dangerous choices. 

The reasons as stated above is why I feel it is of the upmost importance that all members of the Australian Parliament both federal and state should also be subjected to drug and alcohol testing as what is more important than the operation of our government. Australian politicians receive great wages and pensions which should be held to the same account as they want to hold Newstart receivers too. I call on everyone to please consider signing and sharing my petition. 

Thank you.
