No ban necessary. Being a convicted felon is a resume enhancement for Donkeys.
Around 40% of black males aged 20-29 in Detroit are in prison, awaiting trial, on parole, or on parole, a much higher percentage than for women, other age groups, or other racial groups. Any guesses what employers being unable to ask about a criminal record will do to hiring for the law-abiding black males in Detroit?
Will this bill apply to Obama’s second term? Doesn’t a background check include the production of a valid birth certificate?
Whatza problem? Criminal background checks considered racist in Detroit?
With that said where is forgiveness and how do we let people turn their lives around by getting a good job, if they have truly changed?
Freepers of Faith, Freeper Legal Eagles and Freeper Employers please respond, this is key IMHO on turning the country around we are all not saints, but some may have errored more than others, how do we give them a chance without being a doormat as well?
Just pass a bill making it illegal to hire Whitey.
Sure. After they’ve paid their debts, wipe their histories. But know that sentences for real crimes will be harsher (theft, murder, robbery, etc.).
WH: DOJ will work on background checks for guns until Congress passes gun laws
I have to say that background checks should be banned. As a business owner, one of my employee is an ex-felon and he is my best worker in the service area. I don’t ask about criminal past.
So everyone will waste their time interviewing and extending conditional offers to people who turn out to have nine priors. Brilliant!
What about that Sex Offender Registry? Get rid of that too?
Bonding will be a problem once you hire a felon if a bond is necessary.
There are so many pratfalls with this stupidity.
There is a problem that a lot of the ex-cons in the US are aging, but unable to get even minimum wage jobs. One possible solution for this is for states to create poor farms specifically for ex-cons to do minor labor, mostly to support themselves, but in exchange for room and board.
As such, it would serve several purposes, the most important of which is to keep costs down by keeping them out of prison, off most welfare, out of the emergency rooms for health problems, and away from drugs and alcohol.
So, they sleep in barracks, grow some of their own food, make some of their own clothing, and do some jobs that will give them a small income.
The bottom line is that this is not being done for them, but for the taxpayers. If they benefit from it, great.
