Big financial institutions often abuse consumers and wrongly downgrade our credit.
When employers use credit scores in hiring, they often reject very qualified people. This practice disproportionately hurts minorities and the working poor, and keeps people unemployed.
That's why Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced the Equal Employment for All Act, which prevents employers from looking at credit reports when hiring.
Sign the petition to Senator Warren's colleagues: Credit checks for employment needlessly harm those who need jobs most. People's experiences with medical debt, student debt, or other economically challenging circumstances should not stop them from getting a job. Please support Senator Elizabeth Warren's mission to end this appalling practice through the Equal Employment for All Act.
