    I wish someone would explain to me the purpose of doing a background check on work at home employees. There’s no workplace safety component and there is no research that says people who steal from companies are already felons. It’s makes NO sense and should be deemed unlawful. There are millions of people who WANT to work, but who can’t pass the background check or the CREDIT check? Credit check, really? If i had a job, i’d have better credit. I have bad credit, a MASTERS degree and a non-violent felony from 20 years ago and NO COMPANY will hire me??!! Even the companies that make you be an ind. contractor?! This makes no sense. They are using a set formula and not taking anything else into consideration, meanwhile i have experience and am the PeRFECT person for this job. A change needs to happen.
