NEW SCROOGE

My wife told me this morning that employers seeking new hires commonly put “do not apply if you are currently unemployed” in the hiring ad! Um…WHY? Whatever their reasons–they’re bad reasons. It’s flat out immoral. Do the words SOCIAL CONTRACT mean nothing to people anymore? I swear when I was a young man looking for jobs, no such thing was ever in a job listing. The country has changed in the most base-line cultural-fabric fashion.

The Republicans, the Koch Bros types, the Ayn-Rand-fans and friends have created an anything-goes atmosphere. We’ve reached new depths of SCROOGISM.

There’s being a tough competitor in the marketplace–and then there’s being a BARBARIAN. Checking people’s credit ratings before hiring, and this “no unemployed people” –that’s barbaric.
