    Either way I am overjoyed. I am sitting on a cloud...... tonight.
    What inspired me to call yesterday? http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...ur-credit.html

    Geeez.... I freakin' love this forum!!!!
    Well done you should be proud of your persistence because you have made a difference to the political scene and hopefully other states will follow suit.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I don't have a problem if certain businesses like in the financial sector, or retail run credit reports. But I am trying to figure out why an Engineer would need to necessarily have a good credit score? TOJ mentioned that he wouldn't want to hire someone that couldn't get a loan, My question is why is that? Is TOJ requiring his technical engineers to take out personal loans for his business?

    Credit Scoring and criteria is IMHO a worse system that used to exist in the first place. It takes nothing into account about a persons circumstance. But then who am I to tell any business not to do it? What gets me is when Auto Insurance companies started using FICO scores to determine rates. As if somehow, slow pay, or credit problems are an indication of your driving ability.

    Phooey, As a business owner it is my intention to make a profit for myself, in order to do this I may expand my business, I have no intention of hiring anyone who cannot be trusted.
    I already have way too many regulations to adhere to as well as additional costs by virtue of having an existing pool of employees.

    Tim-
    I have never seen or heard anyone contradict themselves so thoroughly in two sentences as you have just done. Congrats! You're a winner!

    Aren't these hiring arguments a little bit non-applicable considering that no one is hiring?

    So if someone got behind on their cable bill or student loans that means they are going to go steal? I guess by this logic, if someone owns a rifle chances are they killed a deer so chances are they are going to go on a shooting rampage at work if they get angry with their boss right, so lets make sure we check to see if people own guns before we hire them.

    I've known completely irresponsible assholes that got a job that required credit checks. I fail to see how one jumps from "this guy got a little behind on his bills" to "this guy could steal from us". One is just something that happens to most people at one point or another in their life, the other is a felony. I'm going to give the majority of people the benefit of the doubt and say they know the major differences between both of them.

    It's an extremely poor indicator. There are a myriad of reasons for a low credit score and financial mismanagement is only one.
