"Unemployed Need Not Apply", that is the mantra going around with some employers, hoping to snag the best candidates for their own employees. Politicians, hoping to combat such practices are toying with the idea of making a law to prohibit the practice, but that would likely be futile attempt for the employers would simply stop announcing it , leaving the policy in tact.

What would be the answer for a very employable potential grade A loyal candidate do in circumstances such as that? Why not go to an interview, tell them you are presently unemployed but you are eager to work for the company and willing to volunteer your services to demonstrate your sklls and value as a company man?

Talk about standing out from the bunch! Who would do that? Some one desperate for a job and confident he could demonstrate to company officials that he is worth the perceived risk that they feared. My bet is he would get that job before going on to hire anyone else.

Think outside the box. These times require it.

The right wing pretends that the unemployed are lazy and do not want to work. They did this during the Great Depression also.

Really? have proof of this assertion cRocks?
The widespread opposition on the Right to extending unemployment benefits, for starters.

The Right's widespread support for employers who want to exclude the unemployed from applying for jobs.

No...we just choose to get government off the backs of business so there will be no need for unemployment compensation and open up the gates so they can get back to producing, and then hiring.

You really aren't any good at this are you?

And I asked for a link, and I got a cheap substitute. *YOU*

I'm not quite sure how I feel about extending unemployment benefits for unlimited time frames during times of debt. Something has to be done to push our law makers to drop some the laws that prohibit the businesses from hiring. Everyone is at a standstill waiting for the other to make a move.

People are not taking jobs below their grade to get by, pushing the gov't to issue more checks and resulting in a lower tax base. We haven't had such a dire situation in a long time. Sacrificing may have to be the answer. I don't want to see the people starve, but just when are where do we stop?

Is it just the right who fails to employ the unemployed? That has to stop!

While unemployment benefits are still being given, take that chance and volunteer somewhere and get noticed by the powers the hire. Perhaps a hokey idea, but it may work somewhere.

I'd bet this is a bullshit story to get lawyers and politicans on the left involved to create new laws to sue companies.

There is no logical reason for some company to openly say they won't hire someone because of being unemployed. It opens up lawsuits, etc.

This story is bullshit and is another angle socialists are going to use to undermine the US economy with laws passed to sue companies on a whim.

What laws, specifically, prohibit businesses from hiring?

It's the regulations that seem to be the problem. I'm not a business person that is involved with hiring so I wouldn't know but several business people have been interviewed lately that tell that the present regulations prohibit them from hiring due to not knowing what lauys ahead in the near future.

This may have to do with fines for hiring too many, additional taxing and other regulations. I believe there is another thread on the board that may be more helpful in answering your question.

I'm sorry. I thought you were discussing something that you knew something about. My bad.

The original post was about employers who are not taking applications from the unemployed, but are willing to hire employed persons from other companies. They have even advertised this fact. Which probably would not be a good idea in the future.

But that is not what you asked about.

Jesus Christ! I can't believe people can be so unimaginative. Print up a few business cards at the local library and tell them you are self employed, but you really need a job for the insurance!

Its not a BS story. I have seen these advertisements myself. There are both pros and cons to the position. I myself have turned down potential employees based on work history or lack there of. The second most seen advertisement you see is where they state NO BAGGAGE!

OK, Fine. You, as an employer? Are you ready for lawsuits? It appears it is coming...

As to my BS comment? It is a matter for me that I think it is ludicrous, and insipidly wrong that employers have to bear such actions when choosing good employees, and turning others down at thier disgression.
