Credit scores are a sham; generational wealth is a flagrant shortcut to instant good credit. If your parents have a good credit score, they can put your name on their credit card and you don't have to shit and you'll have a credit score over 750 instantly.
@jordyn what’s real bullshit is that jobs can run your credit as part of the hiring process
granted, they *technically* need your permission, but if you sign off on a mandatory background check (which way too many jobs need), that’s enough to give them permission anyway
@nowionlywantatriumph isn't this basically true about most protections you're supposed to get as a job applicant? Any employer will be like "if you want to work for us you have to sign away all these rights. If you don't like that, find a job elsewhere, at one of those employers that doesn't make you sign away these rights. What do you mean, every employer demands the same thing? Not our problem."
bonus points if it’s one of those jobs that has anti-union propaganda videos as part of the day one training materials
@jordyn Fun Fact: A friend or partner can do this for you too.
Of course that doesn't help if you don't have a friend or partner with good credit who's willing to let you be on their account for a little while. And white people are more likely to have a friend/partner like that. So then it's white privilege instead of class privilege.
But my point is, if *you* are the person with good credit consider lifting the credit scores of your friends and partners with this one simple trick!
