Letter: Virus thrives on ignorance

Guest View, Miguel Villa: Trade one box for another

After time with the criminal justice system in 2010, I experienced the job rejection that many like myself deal with upon re-entering the workforce. While I was more than qualified for job after job, as soon as they saw the box checked for a...
