I honestly don't know why anyone would move here. It's boring and dangerous with a lot of dumb, uncultured people. It seems like most jobs are warehouse or customer service, and the ones that aren't seem like they require having connections to get them. I have seen convicts get hired, but they were very low-level jobs and/or where employers didn't do a background check.

Memphis is just like anyplace else. Tough job market, mainly warehouse work. Don't know about finding a job with felonies. Most of the jobs that hire felons are already taken by the politicians here. Scrap metal, yea they sell it, they also steal it here too. We can't leave anything outside at work or they will steal it and sell it for scrap.
I hear ya about folks stealing "scrap metal". To them it's scrap, to us it's not. They stole copper from one of our job sites not long ago. It took MPD about two weeks but they did catch them. It's sad sign of the times but it doesn't only apply to Memphis, it's everywhere. Nobody wants to work anymore, they all want something handed to them or just steal it.

I mean if you really want to move to a place where crime is all over and drugs are all over and the school system sucks unless you can afford a private school which I take it if your hunting scrap metal that would be a no then I would stay where you are or find a nicer city.
