I dunno.

In CT, your auto insurance rates can be higher if you have bad
credit--how right is that? And, so what if you have a lien against you
for something, or a court-mandated deduction from your pay, or perhaps a
bankruptcy 2 or 3 years ago--should these be valid reasons to deny
someone a tech-writing job?

Methinks the whole "credit bureau" thing is ugly. Have you ever tried to
change erroneous information there. I have. To date, I've had to change
the same mistake three times because the credit bureau in question keeps
re-posting it for some reason (restoring from a backup? who knows?).
It's minor, but annoying. And, there is no recourse. They gotta make
credit bureaus legally and fiscally responsible for errors they post.

Yeah, it's happened to me three times (that I know of). There was
nothing in
common between them, except that all of them seemed more intent on
protecting themselves and less intent on getting good work.
