Should Job Applications Ask About Non-Violent Felonies?

David_Debates

I'm from the state of Oklahoma, , I was wrongly convicted of a CDS charge less than 7 years ago , and this is considered a non-violent crime. I've applied at many jobs and get denied because of a bad background check, they go 7 years back. I have a child now that I struggle to support because these job applications-even at fast food places ask if you've been convicted of a felony. when most jobs see that you put "yes" they throw your application in the trash,no questions asked. It's considered d...

The fight everyone wants to see.... Well, let's get down to it. Spidey's powers include: -wall crawling -intensified speed, strength, agility, and healing and most importantly... -spidey sense To top it off, Spidey may be a little naive, but keep in mind he's a genius. Batman's assetss include: -strength (inferior to Spidey's mind you) -Martial Arts abilities (nothing compared to the Web-Head's agility) -detective skills -and money https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3DScYKzw80...

RESOLUTION: The way that each factor of our body communicates with the other factors of our body, is equal to the way the total factors of our body, or ego, communicates with the universe. SUPPORTING EVIDENCE: Universally, we have a relationship, and Man can conceive all the universe including himself. On this one to one basis, Man and the universe are in harmony. Where as you would respond "what?" , I understand harmony between the universe and Man, and this is what educators fa...

The Donald has given this election to Hillary

Just so we're clear, I want to see Mr. Trump president more than anyone- maybe even more than he does. And that's why I'm especially angry: the guy is throwing away his chance to beat Hillary this year. Donald just doesn't seem to understand that his controversial off-the-cuff remarks hurt his chances, and before he knows it Mrs. Clinton will be in the Oval Office. In a few months, if I'm wrong about this, you automatically win. I hope you will....

I will be arguing that the US Government's focus should be on rehabilitation, rather than full incarceration, for criminal acts. Definitions: Incarceration: The state of being in prison; imprisonment Rehabilitation: The act of returning something to its original state....

raising federal taxes will be inevitable and be the most responsible thing to do the things that make up by far most of the budget are too hard to cut, and we shouldn't be cutting them too much anyway. social security, medicare, interest on the debt, defense, all make up over ninety percent of our budget. even if you wiped out the rest of the government, which would be the height off irresponsibility, you still couldn't even balance the budget, which is five hundred billion dollars. the budge...

Evolution

John135086
Wolfram

Hello,I'm here to debate that Evolution is flawed. Not in the sense that evolution took a wrong turn and crap happened,but in the sense that the entire idea of evolution IS flawed. Now while I myself am Christian and whoever accepts this will probably be a atheist,I'm not here to debate the existence of God. While you may use God in your argument,please keep it to a minimum. Also,I don't think this would have to be necessary,but please,no trolls. Only accept this if you are serious. In addition,...
