These are the words from a fellow networker who was conveying what happened to a dear friend of hers. A young man knocked on her door and he said he was visiting his grandmother next door. She decided to bake cookies but after starting, she realized she had no sugar. The woman found this odd but ignored her instinct and gave the young man a cup of sugar. She lived alone. 40 minutes later, he returned, cup in hand and when she answered her door this time…he bashed her over the head with a baseball bat. She managed to fight her way away from him, fled to the bedroom, locked the door and called 9-1-1. Unfortunately, he was able to break down bedroom the door, beat her and rape her. He shattered the bones in her face. This is not a story with a happy ending. Here at workbdone, all of our “worker bees” a.k.a. independent contractors MUST PASSS a 3rd party criminal background check. This is non-negotiable. I’ve been asked about whether I believe in forgiveness and also people’s ability to change. My answer is yes to both. I have forgiven a lot in my lifetime. I’ve been cheated on, I’ve been stolen from (money and ideas), I’ve been lied to and wronged in many ways as I’m sure most people have as well. I have forgiven it all. That’s my way of not carrying dead weight and harboring ill will. I certainly believe in one’s ability to change and I hope that change is for the better. I’ve seen people quit alcohol, lose weight, go back to school, etc… I’ve seen the good in people who made massive strides by turning to God and turning over a new leaf. All that said, we will always err on the side of caution when it comes to our customers. We believe that we must take precaution when it comes to who you allow into your home. The interesting piece here is that the people who are registering with us are happy to have this way of separating themselves from other competitors. The people who can pass the background check are happy to apply and chomping at the bit to find work. Others question why we are not more forgiving. Here’s the bottom line. If we can prevent just one person from being violated, stolen from or worse, than that is what truly matters to us. We have already heard from a man who wanted to sign up with us to find some odd jobs and side work. He is a convicted felon, so he is simply not eligible. There are many programs and companies who work with those who have been incarcerated/felons. We don’t begrudge people the opportunity to do so, however our platform is simply not one of them.
