Target to pay $3.7 million to settle suit alleging employment discrimination against blacks, Latinos
By Rebecca Pilar Buckwalter Poza

"Target has agreed to reform its employment screening practices as part of a settlement resolving Equal Employment Opportunity Office complaints dating to 2006 and a potential class action suit. The agreement’s still subject to judicial approval."
"Target agreed on Thursday to revise guidelines for how it screens people seeking jobs at its stores, a step meant to quell complaints that the retailer discriminates against black and Hispanic applicants with criminal records that can include offenses too minor or old to affect their performance as employees."






====================================================

If the law gives those folks another chance and doesn't keep them incarcerated then stores should also give them an opportunity to rehabilitate themselves and become productive members of society, if qualified, by giving them jobs. To not give them a job may very well result in their returning to what got them into trouble in the first place due to a lack of money. Target and all other stores can and should do much better in this regard.

I thought Target was big on being Inclusive. Couple years ago they were willing to let people use the bathroom of the sex they identify with. Looks like they are inclusive selectively and got caught
