Would you hire someone who was homeless (see details)?
I am often accused of being overly kind to the homeless. There are two recurring strains to these accusations: (1) that the homeless should just get jobs already, and (2) that the homeless are inherently untrustworthy. But if they really were inherently untrustworthy, why would anyone hire them?
I am asking you, then, to put yourselves in the shoes of someone who has the authority to hire people for a company. If you knew that a particular candidate was homeless, how would that affect your willingness to hire them? Would you subject their application to greater scrutiny? Would you look for excuses not to hire them?
