    We do full background checks, including credit, on all employees before hire and periodically thereafter. If you don't like it, don't apply for a job with us.

    You being an employer does not entitle you to extort private information from an employee. If you are lending money then you should be able to do a credit check on those you are lending money to.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    As I said, if you don't like it, you don't have to work for our company.

    If other states follow Illinois' lead you will not get to extort private information such as credit information from employees and potential employees.

    I dont feel your company is criminal. I feel they used a tool that was legal at the time. Well.... its still legal for you. They were using a tool. A tool that should have never been available. You can not judge a person on their PERSONAL credit. Should not.
    Maybe we should judge you (if we were a comapny) on your parents. On their background. On their problems. On their past. On your weight. On your religion. On your medical history? On your kids grades.

    Where and when does it stop?
    But credit is even a more nefarious creature.
    You see, sir.... YOUR personal life should be..... PERSONAL. Just go to work.... work your ass off and keep on keeping on.

    Companies like yours are on the way out. The American people are taking this country back. Companies like yours will soon be a thing of the past.

    Our clients always check us out, including our employees that will be working on their account.

    We do not what irresponsible people. Again, no one is forced to work for us. I would add that we get most of our new hires from current employee referrals.

    Only if the law backs up common sense morals. Look..... people NEED jobs. The more we ALL subject to this credit checking, the more it will be accepted.
    For a LONG time, I actually respect the government.
