How long should people be punished for their past?  -- Wells Fargo Fires Woman After Finding Out She Shoplifted 40 Years Ago - The Consumerist
"A woman in Milwaukee is paying for a crime she committed 40 years ago by losing her job. Wells Fargo found out during a background check that she had shoplifted in 1972, and subsequently fired her. She thinks she's already paid her time for that crime, but Wells Fargo's policies disagree." - Me from Bookmarklet
How did they find out? Doesn't seem right. - Stephen Mack
If you're convicted of a crime as an adult, it's always part of your record, unless your record is expunged (even if you're pardoned, it is still there.) It seems pretty unfair, but they're not alone in having policies like that. - Jennifer Dittrich
