Two reasons (not that I necessarily agree with them) that I know of:

1) Lots of HR types believe that credit rating is an indicator of likelihood
of honesty on the job.
2) Highly regulated financial industries HAVE to do them. Blew me away the
first time I went through one, but it didn't seem to hurt anything.

Privacy? What privacy?

Oh yeah, that has been a BIG sore spot with me. What right do they have to
check that and just what in the world does it matter? If I have blemishes on
my credit report, does that mean I do not do my job? Sorry, but I don't see
the relation. I can understand the criminal background check but whether or
not you pay your bills on time? Geez, someone explain that to me.
