I was talking to a relative this morning and he was supposed to get hired at a company close to mine. He thought he had the job secure. He went through the application process, interviews, drug test and everything. He was sure he got it until the background check came up. Safe to say he's still waiting by the phone. Do you guys think this is fair or do you think it a form of discrimination? Is it fair because people who commit crimes should be subject to this kind of check? Is it fair that their mistakes will follow them for the rest of their lives and maybe affect their chances of a better future?
