  • It has been 13 years since my conviction, I have a college degree, and I can't seem to get past entry level jobs despite the additional job training or state certifications I get. What political work is being done to get business to stop descriminaton and remove the barriers from employment I know we all suffer. I am not proud of what I did, but I put it in the past where it belongs. Unfortunetly with restrictions and background there is no fresh start. Its not that I mind people knowing, but to discount my ability to do the job based on distant past does not help me or society. If u know of specific political organization doing work to better our lives let me know

  • I remembered 20 years ago people paid for their mistakes by being incarcerated now they are never able to work again once they are released from jail this does not make sense it is like living in the days of Goliath when man were hung or beat to their knees and than no-one can care for their families.

    Have you contacted the Salvation Army? Or the Goodwill Services if there are any? Also, he should contact his counselor at the prison, and they will have a list of transitional homes that will assist felons coming out of the prison. Or a Half-way house....

  • Again here is the site for my petition. For those that have not seen it.

    www.thepetitionsite.com/731/804/806/demand-equal-opportunity-for-ex-felons-for-employment-to-have-same-rights-as-non-felons/

    Without signatures nothing will get done about the discrimination that businesses get away with, just because we are felons, and that the laws for discrimination does not include ex-felons. With your signature it will tell Washington, that it is unfair to us, and that this needs to be corrected. We need the discrimination laws just as much as does the non-felons.

  • Thank you to those whom like my last post, but if we don't do something about this, it will never get better for us. I am trying to get as many signatures as possible for this petition to go to Washington! It is not fair to us that these businesses are discriminating against us. Even though we make the mistakes we have, we still are titled to make a living, and take care of ourselves.

    It is difficult on my 72 year old mother, having to pay all my fines and taking care of me. I should be taking care of her and my own fines.

    If Society will let me work, I would have her quit her job, and I would take care of her. After all she is my mother and I love her dearly, she still should not have to pay for my stupidity. That is not her responsibility, It is mine!!

    I want to work, but these businesses seem to want to hire those that want to be lazy and not want to work. I'll do their job, just give me the chance!!

    CindyRorie68 Contact the police department to get the probation or parole office's phone number and ask a parole/probation officer for a list that they might have for ex-felons to use to find a job that is felon friendly. My parole officer had a list for me but none of them were hiring. Good luck. Hope this information is helpful.

  • I have started a petition to change the laws of the discrimination that the employers are giving us felons. I have applied to over 200 jobs since I have been home out of prison. No one wants to hire me because I am an ex-felon and I have Theft charges on my record. When I contacted the EEOC about this they told me that being an ex-felon and not being hired because of it, is not a discrimination. But the US Department of Labor says it is a form of discrimination and that there should be something done about it. Well I am trying by writing this petition.

    Will you please go to this link and sign the petition? If we don't do something it will never change. I am so tired of applying to jobs that I am qualified for, have the certificates for, have the experience for the position, and getting turned down because of my record. It is not fair! Yes, I did something wrong, and I have paid for my wrong doing. Now I need the opportunity to show the world I will not repeat what I did in order to get put behind bars. Please show the government that we are not stereotypical felons. That not all of us will repeat our crimes, and that we have risen above it to try and better ourselves. Only Society is not letting us. Please can I count on you signature to help change these laws?

    Go only to private land lords and talk to them on a private basis so they can learn about your personality.

    They won't do a background check.

    Most private land lords only care if you can pay the rent and don't do any damage to their property.
