“If they served their time. Then it shouldnt matter.”
Cool. YOU hire them to guard YOUR home, take care of YOUR child, safeguard YOUR company’s finances. Don’t force ME to hire them!
Why should ex-criminals, EVEN petty criminals be denied employment after their time is served. I don’t know if you know this or not but a LOT of people that get out of jail want to do better with themselves, once they find out they can’t. They go back to crime to survive.
I would gladly hire an ex con to guard my home, or take care of my child, or safeguard my companies finances. They’ve paid their debt to society. Maybe they made one mistake. It shouldn’t haunt them for the rest of their lives.
