Why do employers do credit checks?

And if you have a low credit score or judgements on your credit report, why would that exclude you from a potenial job? I dont understand it, I was disqualified for a job because of my credit, yes its bad,but thats why I’m looking for a better job to fix it. Is it a catch 22, damed if you do and damed if you dont, whats the deal?
Personaly I dont think I’m irresponsible, but I have made some bad choices when I was younger and I dont think employers should judge character by past mistakes. It really sucks!
