          NEW YORK – Students and graduates from the Borough of Manhattan Community College, joined by members of the NY City Council, are demanding an end to credit checks by employees, which they charge unfairly blocks qualified students and recent graduates from needed jobs.

           The protestors asserted that employment credit checks constitute a discriminatory barrier to jobs.

       They want NYC leaders to act now to give students and recent graduates who have taken out loans to pay for stiff tuition increases to have equal access to employment opportunities.
