How can a convicted pedofhile get a job in a day care center if they keep checking on his criminal record?

Driving around Portland, Oregon, one will undoubtedly see a car (likely a Hybrid) adorned with the unofficial slogan of the city, “Keep Portland Weird.”

In keeping with the unofficial slogan of the Rose City, Portland Mayor Charlie Hales has declared that his administration will “ban the box,” a movement by officials to refuse to ask employees whether they had ever been convicted of a crime.

However, Mayor Hales isn’t stopping there; Hales is also proposing a $10,000 per year tax credit to employers who hire convicted criminals.

Hales uses the term “returning citizens” to sanitize the nature of these prospective new hires.

Offering second chances to genuinely contrite ex-convicts is a good thing; if employers wish to offer a helping hand to someone looking to work, that’s great.

However, what this does is prioritize the hiring of felons over non-felons. Those who never committed an assault, never robbed a liquor store or never committed any significant crime will, if Hales’ proposal is adopted, be at a disadvantage for employment.

Yahoo! This is great news for ex-cons here in Texas. We have to get an advertising program started right away. Thank you Portland.

Insanity. The break down of morals and the degradation of the family structure in our society is sad.

If they make a 2 yr community college diploma free it will be looked upon the same as people currently entering the work force who hold only a high school diploma.
