Senator: Employers Shouldn't Seek Site Passwords

It is pretty damn lame that we need a politician to step in with a bill to stop stupid stuff like this. Meanwhile, it is still okay to do credit checks on people applying for store clerk positions. roll eyes (sarcastic)

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said that such a practice is an "unreasonable invasion of privacy for people seeking work." "These practices seem to be spreading, which is why federal law ought to address them. They go beyond the borders of individual states and call for a national solution," said Blumenthal, who first spoke to Politico on Wednesday.
