Employers could be pressured to hire more workers with a criminal background under recent guidelines issued by the federal government. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions guidelines warn businesses about rejecting minority applicants who have committed a crime and recommend they eliminate policies that exclude people from employment based on a criminal record. The EEOC says civil rights laws already prohibit different treatment for job applicants who are of a different ethnic background but have identical criminal histories. The update was issued out of concern that employers might disproportionally exclude minorities from getting hired because more African Americans and Hispanics are getting arrested and going to prison, according to the guideline report.

Mysteriouslyunless not the least bit mysteriouslythe average convicted felon’s criminal history is more readily comprehensible than President You Didn’t Build That’s.
The new federal laws mandate hiring democrats.
I watched Atlas Shrugged 2 last night. Reading these headlines day after day with this corrupt and tyrannical administration is like living in an Ayn Rand novel.
One would think, inasmuch as the messiah was calling for a national police force, these ex-cons will be recruited for Homeland Security jobs. Wow! Are we upside down or what!
Notice it says minorities. Guess the white ex-con is screwed.
People who choose to prey on the innocent have obstacles to overcome. That process should not be done for them. And that crap about how they 'paid their debt' to society by sitting in a prison, doing drugs, watching cable TV, and being fed on the taxpayers dime is crap.
This horrible idea is a perverse incentive that will encourage crime. Wait, you'll see... Or look to Detroit where it's already happening and ask yourself if that's how you want your country to look..
Hey Newbie, what do you think of this law?
Does that mean Jon Corzine can steal billions...I mean, find work again?
This will do wonders for the unemployment rate....
Wana hire some one? naa.. we’ll do with out.
How will you know if they send an ex con to your home I bet that information will not and can not be provided to the customer.
Well I don’t see anything wrong with sending a serial killer/intern to work for let’s say any democrats offices.
I swear every day I get closer and closer to just moving myself and my company out of the US. We’ll see...
Obama voters voted specifically for this. Do not let them off the hook. They voted for Benghazi, they voted for The Iranian bomb, they voted for the North Korean ICBM, and they voted for this. Remind them of it.
>>Well I dont see anything wrong with sending a serial killer/intern to work for lets say any democrats offices.<<
Let’s start by level in the party. I mean, there is no risk so no problem.
The trial lawyers have got to be doing the “happy dance” over this. The lawsuits are going to be rolling in.
So I take it now that our esteemed betters in Washington will hire ex-cons for their interns?
