Felons Need Jobs Too!!!
I am a felon. I have a 2004 conviction for illegal possession of a firearm,a 4th degree crime. I committed no crime with it and I bought it legally,I just did not have the permit to carry it.I know that I was wrong and I have paid my debt. It is ridiculous for companies to not hires felons after they have paid their debt to society.I hate when companies say on their websites that they hire felons but then they don't. It just wastes our time. I am driving for a small local company now. I don't like it but it pays the bills and I am home every night. I didn't like the over the road job anyway. Well, my fellow felons I don't know what to tell a felon looking to drive because everyone does background checks now,and in this economy it is tough for anyone to get a job,let alone a convicted felon. I just thank God that someone was willing to give me a chance. Felons, when and if you do get a chance don't mess it up. I make sure that I am on time and I go to work EVERYDAY and I don't call out. I try to represent us felons well,so that maybe they will say well this guy is a felon a he worked out well, maybe we can hire other felons.Good Luck
