    Ex-cons can no longer be boxed out of jobs | Philadelphia Daily News | 01/12/2012

    Exemptions are pretty interesting.

    How many job applications will have to be destroyed? Not very green Mayor Nutter. :doubt:

    Comments?

    I believe something like 20 percent of Phillyites are felons.

    But particularly disturbing were the exemptions. What about schools, daycares, banks? It makes no sense to me.

    Is the point to open venues for more criminal activity? It seems so.

    I had to be fingerprinted for my teaching license and send in a criminal history report with my resume. I In NJ,VOLUNTEERS, need to be fingerprinted to work coach or work in the schools. I wonder if PA has the same rules. State law would have to supercede.

    I wonder whose brother in law does criminal histories...Somebody will get rich off this I'm sure. (In addition to the lawyers)

    You might believe that, but I believe you would be wrong. ;)
