Hey prairieplaything,<br />
Don’t be so harsh on greenlionburning, she seems to genuinely want to work and return to society. She did not mention what she did to earn a felony so we don’t really know. Jesus Christ committed no real crime but they sure as Hell reamed him - but good. I studied law and found it’s neither a simple nor straightforward thing. It is fickle though - one day you get justice, the next you don’t. Martha Stewart, Marion Jones and Li’l Kim got off easy. You got money like that? No? Then I suggest not throwing stones so swiftly in your self-appointed court of public opinion. God forbid one day you might be unjustly incarcerated and no DNA testing is available while waiting on death row. <br />
Good luck on your continuous spreading of International Brotherhood!<br />
PS – Judgment coming from someone like you who promotes urinating on others in your profile: <a href="http://www.experienceproject.com/about/prairieplaything" target="ep_blank">EP Link</a> criticism is considered a real compliment.
The jobs that felons get are given by company owners that give a second chance to a felon. Find out in your neighborhood who those owners are. Then, file a application and make sure you tell them the truth. Many of these bosses started their own business because they couldn't find a job for themselves even though they want a fresh look at life. Good luck to you.
Head UP... maybe its a sign you should do your own thing. Something you love.. own up your destiny!
It is very difficult. I have a from giving less than a quarter ounce of smoke to two undr cover utah detectives. Back in 1989 when I was 26. wasnt selling anything. When pressed I gave them the weed to get rid of them.. Now Im 48 and pretty much a grown up.. Too late as time passes employers are tougher and tougher. Very defeating, every day.
I know a lot of people with felony convictions that now have to work manual labor temp jobs.
I would not know-no felonious crimes, but I know I cannot find one-for three years now
Wow... some people here... sooo sympathetic. You've done the time... this so called fallout does nothing to help society....
I'm thinking you would have to get a skill like, A/C Repair, roofing, carpentry, marble cutting, computer tech, moving, etc and work as a contractor or have your own business. I actually really try to help whenever I can - I'm looking to contract someone like that and I wish there was a databa<x>se somewhere so i could offer short labor contracts. I don't know if you have tried the unemployment databa<x>se. Once upon a time they used to subsidize the wages - i'm thinking that program is probably gone -_-.
Try lying on your application cuz it obviously doesn't make a difference admitting you're a convicted felon. Not all companies do background checks , a lot say they do just to eliminate the rif raf.
