Sri T (the mystic) says
I'm not sure where you are getting this. A lot of people are excluded due to a bad past. Most jobs with any security check a potential employee's past and many seemingly mundane jobs are checked to some degree. Lying is never a good idea.
It's called fudging a resume. It is reported that 78 percent of the people do it. I know people who have done it and they have been at the same jobs for over 7 years now. You are just unaware of it.
It happens and I am aware of it but every business owner that I know, and I know a lot, do check resumes and if there are any irregularities you won't get the job.
It does not work every time. But people do get back in the work force every day. Homemakers, ex cons, people who have never worked get in. So some employers do overlook the past. It has been said, With God all things are possible! A fact!

People who are illegal get jobs in the US every year too. Employers break rules. There are exceptions to every rule. People get second chances, and third and fourth... Basically it depends on if you can influence people. If they like you, you're in.
There are exceptions to every rule. That doesn't mean that exceptions are the rule. If you lie on your resume or on your application and get hired you can be fired at any time without any other reason so you are putting yourself in a precarious spot.
