Republicans Vote Down Law to Stop Employers From Demanding Facebook Passwords

Republicans once again have proven they love businesses and hate the people that work for them.  It has recently come to light that some employers are now demanding applicants and employees to turn over the login credentials for personal Facebook accounts.  This is such a gross invasion of privacy it has cased Facebook to list asking for login credentials a violation of its terms of service.  Some members of the House of Representatives attempted to add a provision to a bill that allows the FCC to prevent employers from doing such a thing.

Unfortunately, most house republicans don’t agree that this is a bad thing, and probably don’t know what this “Facebook” thing is the kids keep talking about.  The amendment was defeated in a vote of 236 to 184.  The good news is this subject can still return as another piece of legislation, but until then, is prepared to let your boss use your Facebook account to ruin your life.
