Why would Walgreens....

I'm filling out an online application and at the end of the app there are some pre-screening questions. It says they are NOT required but answering them MIGHT help you get hired (over others that don't answer them, I guess).

They asked me if I'm on welfare, for how long have I been on welfare, and now I'm stuck on Welfare case worker's name and phone number question.

Is the 1st time I'm asked these kind of questions and I'm wondering why on the world, would they need to know all that..... Any ideas?

I sure as hell don't know my case worker's name....

Now I'm wondering if they give preference to those who are on welfare (to help them get on their feet) against those who are not?

Because people on welfare get a break because welfare usually have you doing a Welfare-to-work program.

It's so the company can get tax credits if you're hired. I've never seen one in depth enough to ask for case managers name though.

I don't know where you are but, it's standard practice to ask those things. I believe it's all data that goes to the state.

Yes they usually do. Because they are trying to get people out of the welfare system.

I would find those questions offensive

It's so they can receive tax credits for employing you
