There have been a number of reports about employers shunning unemployed applicants for those already holding jobs.
Now, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is trying to figure out whether it’s a widespread practice, Associated Press reports.
In Georgia, the long-term unemployed — those out of work for at least 27 weeks — now make up more than half of the jobless.
What’s been your experience? Are companies bypassing jobless workers?
