Now we employ these practices at our company all people black/white/hispanic/green people/red people get the same frigg'in treatment.I guess now according to the POS's in DC we will only do BG's on Whites :roll: Why on God's green earth would one want to employ a thief,rapist or murder.Oh and do not go the road "he's been reabilitated" while my sis a bigtime lefty/obama supporter with her time in working with the FL State Peniticuary said child molesters/rapists are beyond help.They have such a stranglehold on our economy via DC!!! :soap:
BUT…If that private company has contracts with the Federal Government accepting the Federal Government's employment standards, then the Federal Government can sue. Something tells me the two companies didn't take such sections of their contracts too seriously.
