Job Seekers Being Told ‘If You’re Unemployed, Don’t Apply’

This happened at a Sacramento job fair:

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento job fair highlighted an unexpected challenge for some unemployed people hoping to get back into the workforce. Many of those unemployed are being ‘if you don’t have a job, don’t bother applying’.

Workers with no jobs who have plenty of experience and education flocked to a job fair Wednesday that advertised employers were looking to fill 700 jobs. Nearly 2,000 people showed up to the fair.

But some of the unemployed job seekers say they are facing a new challenge as some companies aren’t even considering applicants who are currently unemployed. Some companies have even gone as far as posting signs, stating you must have a job just to fill out an application.
