    America locks up 1/4 of it’s own population and holds the world record for locking up it’s own people. Freedom LMAO. These background checks keep people from working where the crime has nothing to do with the work. It should work like this, DWI’s = no job selling alcohol like a bartender, Child abusers shouldn’t work in day cares or schools ect, thieves shouldn’t be able to work in a bank or accounting ect somewhere where they could grab cash in large amounts and run. you get the point right?

    Right-to-work is often misconstrued. It doesn’t mean the worker has a claim on the job regardless of circumstance — it merely means the employer cannot compel an employee to join a union or pay union dues as a condition of employment. In some states fair labor laws may aid workers with privacy and other rights, but right-to-work applies to a different context entirely.

    @Redtigerlady2 I’m not sure I follow, what do you mean by “Except in states known as ‘Right to Work’ states!” From what I read and understood, “Right to Work” states are prohibited from discriminating against people who apply for employment but do not wish to join a union. How does the “Right to Work” legislation affect ones right to privacy?

    @Redtigerlady2 Hi there! When you say “Except” what are you referring to?
