Criminal Background Checks

Felons and Criminal Background Checks

Criminal Background Checks

Society sure does have a sick sense of rehabilitation don’t it? How do employers expect an ex-con to get a job if he’s disqualified with the Criminal Background Checks? Sure enough, you got some felons out here with sicky fingers and known for stealing and robbing and quite indeed, they shouldn’t be hired if it’s a pattern of such behavior.
But what about the kid that made a mistake and/or made a bad decision and caught himself a felony? Should he be treated as a castaway?
Society should think of rehabilitating ex-felons. If he’s not able to get a job, what’s left? A life of continued crime just to put food on the table. Mark Green, a 21 year old ex-con from Illinois says he’s forced to sell drugs. He tried for 2 years to get a legitimate job and 8 out of 8 interviews turned him down because of his checkered past.
Society is creating a dangerous loop for those whose willing to make a change. Just because one has a felony in his past doesn’t make them a bad person.
That’s why I salute and respect those business that don’t judge a person by there past mistakes but by there actions as an employee. Below is a list of jobs that still believe in the American Spirit and they hire felons:
