DALLAS -- Finding a job is a full-time job of its own. But what about people who have a hard time getting past the application process because they've served hard time in prison?
Well, Dallas City Council member Tiffinni Young is pushing to "Ban the Box." You know, that thing you check on an application if you've committed a crime?
In a briefing Wednesday, the council debated the idea requiring private companies not ask applicants about their criminal history until a job offer is on the table.
The council is expected to vote as early as this summer, and if this gets checked off, Dallas will be Texas' second major city to Ban the Box for private employers.
