    Thats like a woman giving a BJ in order to be CONSIDERED for getting hired in a male dominated industry. If you dont consent then you dont get the job.

Seeing how a credit report does not say any of those things you can't say someone lacks honor, integrity or is a deadbeat(someone who deliberately does not pay their debts even though they have the ability to do so). Stuff does come up, people lose jobs, people or their kids have emergencies, and all kinds of other stuff happens that would cause a person to be tardy in their payments.
    I stand by my post. You don't stiff people. You don't pay late. It's called honor. You plan. You save. You don't live like a gypsy. You prepare for emergencies. It's called self-responsiblity. EVERYONE should practice it.

    By making that statement you are the biggest loser of this forum. Youre a child. Grow up and join the adults.
    I think Im marking that as the most ignorant statement of the year.

If you don't want them to see yours, don't consent and find work elsewhere.
    So just because an employer is able to strongarm enough applicants into "consenting" that it becomes a cultural norm, that makes it OK? Do you think that employers should be allowed to require you to let a private investigator camp out in the bushes next to your bedroom window? Do you think that employers should be allowed to require you to turn over all your personal emails to them for the past two years? Do you think that an employer should be allowed to require you to suck their dick? As long as you're "consenting" to their precondition for employment, it's all well and good, right?

    It's not that simple, Chickie.

    I agree with the spirit of your post (I think) but you're oversimplifying it. I wouldn't judge anyone based on a credit report. I would look at the circumstances.

    The government and big corporations are much more irresponsible but they're not called deadbeats.

    If somebody is using a credit card to buy a bunch of stuff they don't need then that's wrong if they default on their bill.

    As far as preparing for every emergency, that's impossible. Many people are working 2 minimum wage jobs to survive and everything is spent on just bills and food.

    Someone has to teach the children Chickie. By making your VERY ignorant statement YOU made a personal attack on everyone that has poor credit. If I get an infraction it was WELL worth it. You need to step up on your game and learn like the other adults that your definition of 'losers' is not someone with bad credit.
    But it very well could be someone who doesnt understand or just doesnt care to comprehend how people.... how families fall into negative situations.

    I did no such thing. I spoke the truth. No one "falls" into negative situations; they choose. Again, failing to prepare= preparing to fail. It really is that simple.

    I'm curious. How exactly do you think a 19-year-old who is in a serious accident should have prepared?

    Saving money their whole life instead of buying crap. Having good insurance. Being responsible.
