Interview Great, Credit Check Bad

I just finished the second interview now with four people, for my hopefully new position, after having been laid off almost two months ago.

I was really excited until they made the offer and told me it is contingent on me passing a credit check (and background etc).
I have horrible credit. He said "So nows the time to tell me if you have ever filed bankruptcy etc etc"

I am PIST OFF that this is required for jobs. Especially in such a tough economy right now. F***g banks get bailouts and spend some of the money on luxurious outings and exorbitant management severance packages, not loaning back the money that they were given to do so, and a consumer can't find work if s/he has defaulted on a credit card payment during a bad divorce.

Im not handling cash in this job and I wont be stealing from them! Never even had a parking ticket in my life. Not a criminal and its not fair to treat people this way who want to work!!!!!!!!!!
