So this law is just making business owners waste their time interviewing someone they won't hire. Great way to bring business to the state. This is just another liberal ploy to get some more votes.
WarCry - New Illinois law bans employers from conducting background checks on interviewees - Quincy, IL News
Or, ya know, you could read the article instead of reacting to the headline. Criminal background checks are NOT being banned, they're available after the interview rather than before. Which is exactly what employers have done with me in the past, because they don't want to spend the money on the background check if they don't think they want to hire you anyway.

Great ...... for the "privilege" of being a business owner, I no longer have the right to make my own decision about giving a criminal a second chance. Second chances are required BY LAW. The bar is set just high enough to trip over in this state.
migraine_in_qcy - Quincy School Board votes to raise lunch prices - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Of course not. If we still encouraged personal responsibility and people still knew shame and pride, the number would be much lower. It also doesn't help that the schools push people to sign up for the free and reduced lunch programs because the higher the percentage in those programs, the more money they receive from the state for telecommunications services.

Storm Spotter course hosted at Culver-Stockton

4 months, 2 weeks ago from CSC

C-SC is hosting the class on Wednesday March 19

With tornado season quickly approaching, Culver-Stockton is offering training on the safe and correct response to severe weather.  C-SC is hosting a Storm Spotter class, Wednesday March 19, 2014 from 6:30 -8:30 p.m. in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium of the Performing Arts Center on campus. Jim Kramper from the National Weather Service in St Louis is conducting the class, which includes discussions regarding weather phenomena, storms and appropriate responses to severe weather. Emergency response personnel, members of the community, and students are invited to attend.

At the end of the course, participants may elect to register as Storm Spotters with the National Weather Service or to simply retain the information for personal interest and safety. Others may want to just view the presentation and become more familiar with severe storms, how to recognize them, and the appropriate precautions to consider.  Attendees should bring writing materials for program notes.

This event is offered every two years, and is free and open to the public. For more information, call Bob Sadler at (573) 406-2070 or email rsadler@culver.edu.
