WASHINGTON—Today, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) introduced The Equal Employment for All Act. This legislation would prohibit the widespread use of personal credit history in employment, an unjust practice that poses a serious barrier to economic security for many Americans and leads to discriminatory hiring practices against people of color and the long-term unemployed.
At 11:30 am on Tuesday, December 17th, please join Senator Warren for a press call hosted by the national public policy organization Demos to discuss employment credit checks and how The Equal Opportunity For All Act would increase job opportunities for qualified applicants.
