Government engineers don't either.
You match job for job with the same skillsets and experience, the studies show the opposite.
Now, let's match CRIMINAL RECORDS. Your typical civil servant, e.g. a postal worker or one of the drones at Department of Defense (that's at the federal level eh) do not have CRIMINAL RECORDS!
Show me how Seven Eleven or AAA Refuse could run a business if they demanded that no one have a CRIMINAL RECORD.
Hey, even General Motors hires convicted felons!
The US government doesn't.
You are in la-la land on this matter — YOU look up the studies. Also, you are mistaken about the felony class.
Does “SEIU” give you a clue?
Your right on the govt attorneys and engineers. But have you ever seen the immense size of the Dept of Education or the Dept of Ag or the Dept of Transportation buildings in DC? They are some of the most massive buildings in the city and you can bet every office is full. What they hell do we need more and more taxpayer funded doo gooders telling the states how to educate their kids and how to grow their crops?
