Drug Testing for Unemployment Benefits; 7-Year-Old Gender Transition

Overnight America
Tuesday, October 22nd
Guest host Mike Ferguson fills in for the vacationing Ryan Wrecker. The Department of Labor published a new rule Friday that will allow states to expand the number of people who have to pass drug tests to get unemployment benefits. Ferguson distinguishes between the truths and false narratives of the report and discusses the ramifications of the legislation. Next, a jury in Texas returned a verdict on Monday that will prevent a Texas dad from intervening in the gender transition of his 7-year-old son. Ferguson questions why a jury would possibly side with the mother in this situation and allow her to permanently disrupt her child’s growth.
