Drunkenness not tolerated at Vermont Yankee

There was  a recent report by the NRC about the Vermont Yankee that an supervisor  was fired for being drunk:


A non-licensed contract employee supervisor had a confirmed positive for alcohol during a random fitness-for-duty test. The employee’s access to the plant has been terminated. ..The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.

I suppose you could conclude that the system is working: bad behavior is stopped.   I wonder about the morale of a company  where supervisors are coming to the work place drunk.   It is hard to imagine that a random test has caught all of the cases of drunkenness.
