Some places hire people who have a past. Couldn't tell you which ones tho', my mind is blank... Maybe just go ask around and be up front with whoever you're seeking employment with.

Good luck on that!

I'm sure everything I have posted many others agree, and I'm sure everyone is sick of it. I'm also white, no drugs, I play by the book when it comes to a job bc I take it seriously because I have mouths to feed. But it's truly disturbing to know that I have a college degree, and I work in a factory full time and a fast food chain part time. 2 jobs! When I have a degree for something that pays up to 80,000 a year, but yet what I make is tremendously less than that. And don't even get me started on the border patrol because apparently they aren't doing their f'n jobs. Keep illegals out of this town and away from our jobs! Hire people who have kids, who need a job, who struggle. Not illegals who have 20+ people living with, food stamps, nice cars. They don't need it!
Not many $80K jobs here in Motown and I'll bet it's not border hopping Mexicans taking the ones we have.

If you have a degree in a something marketable (you didn't waste your parent's money on partying & Liberal Arts, did you?), then there are jobs out there. But you have to go where the work is.. It's unrealistic to expect to stay in in a town like this one until your dream job appears. Go find it. If you don't, and insist on staying in this back water burg, well, that's on you. Not the Mexicans.

You're right. There's not any jobs here in Morristown that pay that much. Not really any jobs around that I qualify for except Nashville and Memphis, trust me I've looked into it. It takes money to move. Money that even with 2 jobs, I don't have.
And if you were to look at previous posts you would see that I talked about the ILLEGALS. That's what needs to stop and people at the border need to start doing their job.

Did you not read my entire post or did you just choose to ignore the fact that I said "not all the jobless are druggies". I don't believe I said all white folks were. But that's the majority of what we see.

I work for a temp service. We do hire Hispanics who have VALID socials. They are ran through a database. It's funny when we have 3 Hispanics waiting in the office & 4 young white men & we put the 3 Hispanics to work. Why? Because they passed the drug screen!! If half the people in this town would get off the pills they might could find a job. I'm not saying all the jobless are pill heads because they aren't but the majority of the ones I see, are. Not to mention the Hispanics actually show up for work.
That's funny. I'm sure the Hispanics pull out one of 30 ID's, and a few socials and says 'which one amigo?' I mean come on. I say the only reason you pick Hispanics over people who struggle is bc Hispanics will do more work for less money.

It's a shame. People have every opportunity as Hispanics but they choose not to take it. And they blame it on 'border control' smh.

Can you read? If so, please read my previous post before commenting. All Socials are ran through a database. They aren't allowed to submit 30. They submit 1. If it comes back as valid, great. If not, we follow proper protocol. And no, it has nothing to do with how much they will work for. All temps are sent in at the same rate of pay as other temps and it doesn't matter if they are black, white, yellow, green are blue. We have a cap on temps set for the specific company, job, etc.

We will not send in a temp whose drug test come back positive. Period. We are liable for that. It isn't my fault people abuse drugs.

We look at criminal background only. It depends on our client and what they look for. Some look for felonies and misdemeanors. Some look for just felonies. Some require going back 1-2 years. Some require 5-7. Some require them from the time the applicant turned 18. All companies are different & have different guidelines. We do not check credit scores.

My previous employer checked credit scores. His mentality and the mentality of lots of employers is if someone can't pay bills on time, have lots of delinquencies, etc. then they aren't very responsible. I do not agree with that. People fall upon hard times. Bills get paid late. It's happens to us all. Even car insurance companies check credit scores now & can deny you insurance if your credit score is poor or less than mediocre.

They don't need to be perfect. It's a buyers (employers) market. More people looking for work than there are jobs available. Plenty of applicants to choose from. The employer can be as picky as they want to be and potential employees better keep their nose clean if they want the job. Just the way the world works. Your choices, good or bad, have consequences. Get yourself an education and/or skills that are in demand and hard to find and then you get to call the tune.
