I want the judging for people to stop as far as employment goes. The way I see it is if you have the skills to do a job it shouldn’t rest on what you did years ago or as a kid. I’ve been turned down so many opportunities due to my background and it hurts and makes you feel less than a man or woman. When you try so hard to find a job and get the interview and ace it only to find out they can’t hire you because of your past charges that you’ve already paid the price for. I think they shouldn’t judge you based on your past but on your skills and work ethic and what you as a person can do for that company to help them grow. With that being said I don’t look down on anybody who is trying to better themselves and family members by working and making a difference in the world and being a model citizen. It would make life easier to stop judging people and let them work I feel many people would stay out of jail and want to continue doing good Honestly. Given the opportunity many who can’t afford to have their previous charges wiped off their slate would flourish and it would probably boost the economy and lessen the impact of people on government assistance as well. This is a goal of mine to have done for people in similar situations thanks for your time and god bless.
