Obama's "Jobs Bill:" Discussion of candidate's 'job history' during interview may be off-limits (!)
Original post made by Amy on Sep 16, 2011
"Employers already know that questions about age, marital status, religion, and the like are out-of-bounds during job interviews because of how easy even innocent questions on these topics will bolster later claims of discrimination. This law would threaten to make the topic of job history off-limits as well. It's absurd to think that recent job history is somehow an unfair criterion to use when evaluating competing candidates for a position. Unless the job involves unskilled labor, a candidate who has not worked in two years will not be as valuable to a company as one that has maintained his or her skills up to the moment. If businesses are no longer allowed to evaluate candidates based on objective value, then what are they supposed to use for hiring criteria?"

This is a further example of how the Obama Administration is deliberately destroying our economy...and ensuring that the unemployed will remain unemployed.
