    Then don't keep making rhetorical excuses for people's inability to apply for a job from a company.

    You are free to have that false opinion of what I did but you would be wrong sir.

    In my experience only menial and high-turn around jobs remove the personal presence aspects of applying - like Walmart and other discount stores.

    In the past when I've shown up to apply and it's an in-store application computer that's set up I just leave. I don't want to work for a company that could care less about the employees.

    I would never opt to use an online system - I do like seeing and meeting applicants when they come in. Appearances do matter and you can't verify that someone does look like a street bum without seeing them vis a vis

    I don't really see how this can be a violation of civil rights. It may not be terribly smart, but it's hardly a crime. Disallowing those without internet access only disallows a small group of people, and basically only keeps the completely impoverished from applying. It is within the rights of a company to hire or not based on economic status. It's a douchey thing to do, since those are the people who most need these kind of jobs... but it's legal.

    Again prove that being poor is the same as race or a disability. As soon as you do that you may have a point. Until then you got nothing but an opinion based on emotion and not fact.

    Examples of what? Please point out how requiring an on line application is a civil rights violation. You have no evidence to back this up, none. It is not a violation because it is the choice of the person to do it or not. It is again not something out of their control, end of story.

    LMAO
    <standing with a puffed up chest>"end of story!"

    Ive said in this thread MANY times and pointed out that even though I voted yes I dont think "civil rights" would work and that I just think its plan old discrimination and unfair practices.

    Ill give you the benefit of the doubt though and figure you just missed that even though its partially even in my quote so that your rant doesnt look stupid, knee jerk and meaningless.

    The flip side of course is ASSuming that businesses should cater to your problems.

    Again I agree 100%

    to bad accepting hard-copy resumes/apps doesn't seem like "catering" at all but common sense.

    If a company maintains applications electronically, why the hell should they have to pay someone to type in the application data for someone too stupid or lazy to find a computer to use.

    Also, do you actually know someone that cannot manage to find a computer to use? If I knew someone in that situation, I would offer to let them use mine and also help them if they needed it. Apparently you are only charitible with other people's time and money?

    Saying they are stupid and or lazy is a false assumption and absurd.

    There would be any EXTRA paying for the entry of an app considering you already have someone involved in HR and this is already done at many companies and it wouldnt take any time at all. If its a problem let them do it themselves.

    Also It can also be scanned.

    If I could help someone in this case I would you assuming I wouldn't is just more nonsensical ranting. LOL
