    to an applicant.

    It is likely that the pool of unemployed people, in good times and bad, probably has a higher proportion of malcontents, drug addicts, thieves.... blah, blah, blah.... But as a matter of public policy, should an employer have the right to exclude all unemployed people from consideration? Is it Ok to exclude diabetics? Fat people? Smokers? Single people? Women of child bearing age?

    Of course, this problem goes away if labor is scarce. That is why we need a jobs program..., an employer of last resort for those who need it.

    Don't squander your youth. You never can buy it back.
