In case you didn’t know, I can be particularly political from time to time. However, since it is the “happiest time of year”, it should be no surprise that holiday cheer and political action can overlap.
In case you didn’t already know, there’s no correlation (none) between one’s credit and their ability to work or their propensity to commit fraud. And yet, almost half of all employers use credit checks when hiring people. In New York City, we’re working to stop this practice from continuing. At this time of year, we take the tradition of caroling and apply it to the great cause of banning credit check discrimination (while also having an absolute blast).
