New Backward Policy for Hiring of City Workers

This is an alarming new City law.  While I subscribe to the notion that everyone deserves a second chance this new ordinance goes way too far.  


"It will target for hire as City workers: (1) the homeless; (2) formerly incarcerated, including those on parole or probation; (3) "former" gang members; and (4) troubled and "disconnected"/fostered youth. 

These individuals will be recruited to replace the 46% of current City employees eligible for retirement within two years." 

Veterans are fifth on the list!
