Employers have been open about their disdain for the unemployed -- some companies even specify in ads that they will only consider candidates who already have jobs. But according to a new survey, companies would sooner hire a worker convicted of a misdemeanor than the long-term unemployed.

Bullhorn, a maker of recruiting software, conducted an anonymous survey of 1,500 recruiters and hiring managers, and the recruiters admitted that it was easier for them to "place someone with a criminal record (non-felony) in a new job than it is to place someone who has been unemployed for two years or more."
