    Nobody has shown any use for pre-employment credit checks. There are no correlations between bad credit and being a bad employee. No research of any sort supports the notion. This is just another bad idea that's spread through the business community, more "Who Moved My Cheese?"-style bull.

    They get away with it because there aren't any jobs out there. If the economy ever actually picks up again, they'll stop because there will actually be more competition for people than for jobs.
