Let’s face it. Nobody prefers anyone with a criminal record over someone who doesn’t when they’re hiring people. It’s a reasonable expectation for a business to want to have a glimpse of the value system of a candidate. Their criminal history is one way to do that.
Why, then, is Los Angeles so against the idea of asking an applicant if they were convicted of a crime?

This is criminal in and of itself. It will make insuring businesses based in LA more expensive. It will put people at risk. I’m not suggesting that criminals don’t deserve a second chance. I’m suggesting that businesses deserve to know if they’re hiring criminals. It’s not rocket science.
