You're retarded..possibly 1 in 100 might be felons but no way its 1/3 of the population. You're obviously some pothead trying to sway people its ok to be high all the time. Back up your facts bonghead.
Sure its possible- 1/3

As for the question that lies...Is it possible for a felon to get picked for a job over someone who has a clean Background check the ANSWER IS YES. If you learn from your mistakes move on and get a degree you can recover. I have read where someone has got a 4 felonies he went got his degree, and now he's had 5 job offers. 1/3 is about accurate they say about 85 million people out of the US's 313 million people have a background. 85/313= 27% roughly. So roughly now about a quarter. As to the felons #..1/100 is too small for that to be possible, the real figure might be along 1/35

Hey, you did the crime, you served your time. You are square with the house. If ex-cons can't get a job, what is their recourse? I say give them a chance. I'll bet they appreciate the job a lot more than most people. Face the facts there are more criminals that haven't been caught than those who have and they are all scheming to make easy money without earning it. Everybody deserves a second chance if they have paid there dues.

Papa John's Pizza was ran by a bunch of low lifes and criminals at one time. I heard the main corporation stepped in and made the fromer owner, mikey "mr sleezy" sloan, sell out. At one point in time, i also heard he had a convict on the payroll that was still in prison. It seems like the low lifes get all the breaks!

The solution is simple: commit a felony, turn yourself in, plead guilty, do your prison time (if any), and then you can get that job you want.
THAT IS SOOO NOT TRUE!! i have a felony charge, I was on drugs and got a theft over 1000.00 and i have since gotten clean, and cannot get a job! i think that you people are judging and should leave that up to GOD!!

In Canada you can come out of prison with a union card and a job.
In America you mess up and you can't get a job flipping burgers.
How long should a man have to pay for a mistake? Forever?
If a man wants to turn his life around he should be able too.
I would rather have a man who committed a crime and knows how to work than a slack jaw who does not know how to work.
Search your heart, is it that you have NEVER COMMITTED A CRIME OR IS IT YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN CAUGHT

Ain't you ever seen the FBI in somebody's house before! LOL! You know me, bro! Good to see ya! Like you said, when you have done your time, you are square with the house. People fuck up every now and then, it's human. The smart ones learn from it and there is little recourse for the ones who have decided to get it right. An uphill battle. And like you said, many have just never been caught. I say, a man who has paid his dues is better than a man who has never been caught! People don't know the privileges of being a good citizen until they lose them and have a chance to regain them. Keep the faith, bro! As one of our most hated acquaintances would say "ya know, weally, ya know, weally!" See ya at the Plum festival, bro! Weally! LOL

When you were sentenced, somebody somewhere said wtf that is not enough time. Thank the Lord for your freedom.

The difference in a convicted felon and the rest of us is that they got caught and we didn't. Once a person has done their time, they should be able to work like the rest of us. They bear an extra burden of having to pay restitution, back child support, court costs, on and on. And they have the same bills as the rest of us in addition to all the court imposed costs. So give them a break. If they mess up, let them go.

Yeah and I'm sure somebody somewhere thinks you're dumber than a box of rocks and wonders how you got a job doing anything. Get off your soap box you idiot.

I know that is big probem for ex-felons to find decent job. If someone made a mistake, he should not suffer for it forever. So there are nice peoples who care for those peoples, and made a website that could give them a chance. Visit site xamire, https://xamire.com/ , and find job for yourself, beacuse everoone should have it.

And how did you come up with that "simple" solution? I have to tell you, that is MOST DEFINITELY NOT the case. I committed a felony, served my time, and now I'm having a harder time than you can even imagine finding GAINFUL (<--keyword) employment.
