There are two types of people in this world: Those who close drawers after they get something out and those who don’t. My husband is the latter. That man cannot close a cabinet door to save his… Continue

It's outrageous to me, or better yet, that in this day and age, the idea of employee screening
programs still have the lingering stigma of a subversive process.
