  • You should look into starting a Home Based Business. You don't have to have degree, doesn't matter your race, age, or criminal record. There's many things to do and make a great income and change lives.

  • No but you might contact the Star of Hope in Houston. They may be able to give you information.

  • Hopefully no one. Jobs should go to the millions of good hardworking honest americans with self respect that need jobs not someone who doesn't have enough decency to stay out of prison for felony charges.

  • From my experience (I help people with disabilities find work, many also have felonies) there are certain jobs that hire felons:
    Any Laborer type job
    Restaurants (back kitchen type work, cooking, dishwashing)
    A person can also get their CDL but will be limited on what they can haul. I had a client with drug felonies call around and only 2 out of the 7 trucking companies would not consider hiring someone with a felony.

    The best thing to do is to call and ask. Many places will consider the person and the situation.

  • Yeah I guess someone who is a felon should just collect welfare right? Geez. Not all felons committed violent crimes and many of them screwed up when they were younger and no longer live that kind of lifestyle. They deserve a chance to redeem themselves. People wonder why some people seem trapped in that lifestyle. They have no other options available to them to straighten their lives out.

  • Focus your job search on small businesses, especially startups.
