Would You Give Your Facebook Login Info To A Potential Employer? - BTR Pulse [ep71]

Recently, national attention was brought to the alleged practice of employers asking job applicants for their Facebook passwords in order to determine whether the individual has an appropriate social media identity. In response, Senators Charles Schumer (NY) and Richard Blumenthal (CT) have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate whether the practice violates federal Law. This week on BTR Pulse, host Lauren Hawker asks New Yorkers their thoughts on the controversial topic. /// Featured song: “Runaway” (Wavves remix) by Mr. Little Jeans /// Photo credits: http://blumenthal.senate.gov/biography http://www.flickr.com/photos/americanprogressaction/5512871254 http://www.flickr.com/photos/usfbps/4607149210/
