I actually agree with what you are saying. My boss will hire felons, and sometimes because he is getting older he doesn't think it through before doing so and myself and other hard working employee's have to pick up slack we can little afford the time to pick up.

Because of this experience I also know the type of felons I would never in a million years hire, because they all follow a distinct pattern.

A.) I would never hire someone who had a drug conviction. No drug offender I have seen does anything but lie and steal and avoid working at all cost. Yes, they can change, but the prospects for change statistically are so low that I would never take the risk if it were my decision.

Any other crime it depends on the situation surrounding it.... and this is where the interview process is so important. I do not believe that we can say no because of a felony... but at the same time some felons just aren't good employees.

I agree with what you said, depending upon the type of position being applied for, it is costly for the employer to take an unknown risk and due to that its easier to say no...

But at the same time, sometimes the risk has a higher payout.

Who cares about target??
I don't shop there anymore since I got carded for buying a 5 pack of bic lighters.
Understand, I am fat and old and there is no mistaking these facts, even after speaking to the manager, and her saying...yada yada yada company policy...
I said ok and left my whole basket at the stand and shopped elsewhere.
They lost money there and will continue to lose.
Let them hire all of the felons they want.

Nothing to do with target it's more about the idea, target doesn't pay we'll anyway.

We need to start thinking about helping people.

But that would be socialism. Or even Christian!

You can control the electorate if you can eliminate a significant majority from voting.

Exactly. The right wing's electoral strategy.

The real truth is that target does not need to have you put this on the application. They are going to pull up all this information in their routine background check. They still won't hire you if you have any history of crime.

Well, maybe this is how Target got hacked... idiots.. 40 MILLION Debit cards and credit card numbers stolen in the past few weeks... geez. going to get ours changed today just to be safe.

You may have been convicted of a felony, but that doesn't make you a felon. You probably were convicted of a felony because you were unable to afford adequate legal representation, considering the corporate / state legal system has endless resources to press their non-existent, fake codes and statutes upon one, it is very difficult to beat a charge, no matter how petty (petit) it may be.

And back to the replies to the OP which think that not looking into criminal histories is a bad thing, those are the sheeple to be sheered by the state eventually, those who don't realize that anything one may have been charged with is still in the record whether the charges were dropped or one was convicted.

Anyone who believes people should have everything they ever did or didn't do, whether they were convicted or not held against them until the day they die deserves exactly that.

Damn there are some dumb people out there!.

I suppose you who support being marginalized for life because of criminal charges, think it's OK to be marginalized for bad credit too, TARDS!.

Deny a person who falls behind on their debts a job, when they are trying to get a job to pay their damn debts and obligations?.

This country is in so much hot water because of the opinions of what amounts to a bunch of retards, that being public opinion.
