Equal Job Opportunities for Convicted Felons

This petition had 1,344 supporters

Is there a such thing as second chances? Everyone's quick to put a gang title on a person for a bigger story, but what about these businesses? With the 401k and dental insurance? Berry Plastics can we get a new hire program for convicted felons? Kerry Ingredients can you not forgive a person for mistakes committed at a young age? Mets Bus station? We are forced to work 2 or 3 jobs to suffice for one..... Ameriqual can we be brought directly into the company? Can we receive a job making 12 to 13 bucks an hour with paid vacations and full benefits? Or are we going to continued to be turned away and forced with the decision to feed our family by any means necessary? Gun violence.... Gangs.....drugs... All results of low income families, torn apart from father's being thrown into the system.....The system only destroys...but has no means of fixing and is designed for offenders to reoffend. Everyone is quick to tear down, incriminate, and destroy the lower income community... But is anybody really willing to give a 2nd chance? A major fact: A lot of first time Violent offenders are 2nd time felons.....or young kids whose father is serving 20 yrs or more for non violent crimes....
