Does Debt Discrimination Infringe On Your Civil Liberties?

Monday, December 27, 2010

We come back to an ongoing conversation as regards debt and unemployment in America. Last week we spoke with Takeaway and WDET listener Christine Tobin, from southeast Michigan. She told us she believes she was turned down for a job because her credit check came back with a prior bankruptcy.

After hearing her segment, Southfield, Michigan bankruptcy attorney Clinton Hubbell wrote in to us, saying that he feels those Americans losing out on job opportunities due to debt discrimination are having their civil liberties infringed upon. He joins us to discuss what exactly the federal bankruptcy code says, and how it protects you.

I agree with Mr. Hubbell that someone who has filed for protection under the Federal Bankruptcy Code is less of a risk than most people as most people have plenty of debt.
It is a right given to citizens by the US Congress to file bankruptcy, now Congress needs to step up and start enacting laws to protect those who have filed to prevent this type of discrimination.
