nobody wants an untrustworthy felon working for there so called honest establishments today. any kind of felony seems to automatically disqualify you from a job even if your skills and credentials meet or even over qualify for the position you so desire. even if you somehow pull your self through all the hassles of finding work or just simply making a new life for yourself, you will see that even with good credit and trying to start your own business is made virtually impossible for a felon. the system needs to create a time limit for struggling felons to have our records covered by businesses judging on the severity of the crime. I'm not saying that our records should be erased, just simply covered so that we may be protected from discrimination, obviously judging by the severity of the crime. we should all get together and protest for our rights.
Some factory work, get a cdl and drive an 18 wheeler or a class b truck. Go learn a trade like welding or a machinist or an electrition. But all to often they are doing fbi background checks now. They can go way back. Any company who ask the question ever been convicted of a felony is discriminating against you. I encourage all none-violent felons to ban together and begine to fight for our basic right to work.
Anything that involves art. Tat's and piercings. I mean most people have great skills when it comes to tagging & drawing and its useful in art classes and parlors.
