Indiana Felons Need Jobs Too!
Indiana felons are shot down for jobs every day for a criminal conviction. I feel if the felony is non-violent or is over 7-10 years old with no backslides, an employer should not be able to ask such a question on a job application. It is borderline discrimination. Who cares that I have a 15 year old DWI felony, how does that prevent me from doing my job I am tired of employers taking pick of the litters, when there are other highly qualified individuals out there that may have had a few problems when they were younger. Several states with similar laws are Hawaii, Kansas, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. They can ask, but can't "not hire you" for a criminal conviction. Although these states laws vary in degree, this is a general rule). Join the bandwagon. Lets create a similar law in Indiana, so we can all find decent jobs without being discriminated against. This will be forwarded to our Indiana Legislators . Lets make this happen!
