An SEIU bargaining team member at the University of Oregon wants the university to stop asking job applicants whether they’ve committed crimes.

In addition to a fair minimum wage, speakers asked university administrators to remove a question on applications asking if the applicant has ever committed a crime.

“I’ve made mistakes and it should not affect me,” Earl said.
