As Obama has made explicit, the modern Democrat Party exists to punish its enemies and reward its friends. Among its friends are criminals, who share liberals’ smash-and-grab, if-it-feels-good-do-it moral creed. Consequently, in a city run by moonbats,
The Seattle City Council [Monday] unanimously approved a bill that would prohibit employers from asking about an applicant’s criminal history until after an initial screening. Employers could reject an applicant because of a criminal record, but only if there is a legitimate business reason to do so.
The measure was strongly opposed by some business groups, including the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce, which said they didn’t want the city second-guessing their hiring decisions. They also opposed a provision that will allow the city Office of Human Rights to investigate complaints by job applicants who believe they were turned down solely because of their criminal history.
This means that criminals will have de facto hiring priority, since not hiring them will cripple businesses with lawsuits. But the businesses will also be sued if the crooks bureaurats force them to hire continue to indulge in their criminal proclivities at the expense of customers.
Either way, wealth producers take it in the neck, as do law-abiding normal people. That’s what they get for being the Democrats’ enemies.
