A Small Step in the Right Direction

A limited step in the right direction in the Nebraska Legislature:

State Sen. Bill Avery of Lincoln has introduced LB 932, a measure that would eliminate the “have you ever been convicted” question on job applications for public-employer jobs. That means jobs with cities, counties or the state.

Avery says that limiting it to public employers is in response to pushback against such an action from private employers. Private employers are within their rights. But they probably are missing opportunities for some excellent and productive employees.

People who have made serious mistakes and who are working hard to put their lives back together are far more motivated, trustworthy and productive than most folks.
