  • Should have mailed the census in when it came. I know they don't do background checks on these people. My bil is a felon and they hired him. Be careful ladies.

  • That sounds about right. If you don't fill it out your a criminal, so they send a criminal to your door. Glad I mailed mine in.

    Actually, I am a Census worker right now and they DO finger print everyone and subject them to a background check. Maybe your brother's offense was not violent? It is illegal to refuse employment to someone just because they are a felon. You can fire them if they lie on their job application and say they're not when they are.

    Please don't think the actions of a few violent jerks are representative of the entire Census. I'm not going to hurt you if I knock on your door.

  • Had you done your job and sent it in, no one would have to come to your door in the first place. I worked for the Census... We aren't all crazy. And a few assholes don't act for us all. But either way, it comes down to the fact that you should have sent in the census in the first place.
