    you did do the crime, right? looks like construction for you….

    it all depends on the crime. theft? no bank will hire you. murder? well, no one will hire you.

    it sucks, but you made the choice to do the crime. if you thought about it at all, you would have realized what the repercussions would be.

    By taking and doing well at the $ 7.50 an hour job. After proving that you are no longer a menace to society and are ready to be a productive citizen people will be more willing to take a chance on you.

    Trust is earned, not normally given. You broke the trust. You need to earn it back.

    Temp Agency…..they supply work for all different ranges. Wether assembly, warehouse, loading docks….a temp agency is probably the best way to go. C’mon, a place that are looking for any physical labor does not expect people to come running for applications. Especailly if they are a small company. They’re more likely to resort to an agency.

    If the EX-felon has only a high school education, then how do you EXPECT to land “decent employment”????? While you WERE a felon, you should have worked and gotten a GED and maybe even college (if you were INSIDE long enough, college would have been FREE too)…. you can’t and SHOULD NOT expect anything but a MINIMUM WAGE job if you don’t have much of an education and having a felony record doesn’t give too many points either—-take WHATEVER job you can get for now, get that GED or go to COLLEGE and make something of yourself … it takes time, but what else do you have????? If you want to show people you are NO LONGER felon material, get to work, go to school and get ahead…. you may have STRIKES against you but you aren’t out yet–you just have to PLAY HARDER to get what you want—oh and PLAY LEGALLY.

    I am confused by the $ 7.50 p/hour being a ‘No No’. Does that mean you find that amount of money demeaning to you? or too little to be paid? It’s going to be difficult to employ you. You are a convicted felon and as such, are not trustworthy. Period. If you are lucky enough to get a job, it won’t pay much, you may have to take 2 jobs to survive. Many people do just that, every day, and never see the inside of a prison cell. Keep out of trouble, avoid situations that will get you into trouble, work hard at whatever job you get and be damn grateful that you have one. At this point, society owes you nothing. You owe society. Make them and yourself proud. Be the ‘former’ felon who made good.

    Don’t listen to these @$ $ holes. Regardless of what your crime was good luck. Everyone deserves a job that is satisfyingly and provides a sense of dignity. Attempt to work for the municipality or state. There are a lot of options. Dont give up.

    This is really the most unjust part of the correction system. Your sentence extends once you are out by having that conviction follow you around. It prevents many ex-cons from obtaining decent jobs and therefore adds to recidivism rate because if an individual cannot get work they may often turn to crime.

    In a perfect system, once your sentence was complete you would be seen as having paid your debt to society and there would be no issue with anybody hiring you. It seems to go against the idea of prison being the punishment if the punishment tends to extend into your post-incarceration life.

    It would be better if once you served your sentence the conviction was dropped off your record so this kind of prejudice wouldn’t exist. The only exception should be for violent offenders or sex offenders because of the safety risk imposed. But for all others the conviction shouldn’t be a factor in hiring.
