Bank fires worker because he was arrested 50 years ago

This is a sad day when someone is fired for being arrested 50 years ago on a very small charge just because of new banking regulations that weren't even meant to regulate people like him.  This man was charged with dropping a fake dime into a washing machine 50 years ago (when he was a teenager in high school)!  Hopefully he will be able to appeal the decision.

Brendan Spaar does not like this at all.
