I commend you on successfully reintegrating into society.

Personally, I feel that VK's hiring practices are exploitative. They know persons with a criminal record are some of only people willing to work so hard for such little pay. Equal work warrants equal pay, regardless of history, IMO.
Agreed.

Not always the case. I know many church ppl that would never screw someone over. Moral of the story is that, not only can you not judge a book by its cover, but you can't judge a person by a book.

I studied for a certification online using nothing but free materials found using Google and was hired as a service technician in about 5 weeks making $17/hr. I know plenty of people who got into electrical, plumbing, hvac, pc repair, etc all the same way.
Very good example. There's no reason we can't become more educated these days. They might have to work somewhere in the meantime to make ends meet, but it'll eventually pay off.

They are are many people with college educations that can not find a job. College education does not guarantee a well paying job anymore. Then they are in debt with college loans.

Our country's debt has gone back many years, but, it's never been quite this bad!

Drug recovery centers in Portsmouth, Ohio= alternative to jail/prison. Fact. More often then not these individuals have no longterm intent to remain clean. They would just rather spend 3-6 months in a recovery center rather then going to jail for drug related crimes. Fact. Get back with me in 6 months to 1 year and we'll see how many remain clean and employed.
When the recovery centers decided to partner with VK they should have ensured that ALL of the current VK employees were clean. I do commend VK for drug testing their employees, but as of this morning, only half of the employees had been drug tested, and those were the ones that were let go at the beginning of the week. The reason for this is because catastrophically more employees were lost than were intially hoped (straight from the horses mouth). What sense does it make to partner recoverying addicts with actively using addicts? None. So much for VK trying to help these recovering addicts reintegrate as drug free productive members of the society.
As someone stated in an earlier post VK's hiring practices are in fact exploitive. They are surely under the impression that these individuals will not "work out" in the long run and that they will have a fresh supply of employees from recovery centers at their finger tips when this group of new hires has ran its course.
Seems like these recovering addicts have been given a false sense of hope for a maintaining a successful recovery. In fact they have just been thrown to the wolves.

Most of you idiots are on topix whining about people on welfare spending your hard earned tax dollars, then you have the balls to get on this forum and b1tch bc people smoke pot and get fired. Screw you and your opinions, Im so grateful I dont have people like Monty in my family bc I sure as hell wouldnt pick a hipocrit like this to be a friend. Many addicts wont work (unless they are hookers or dope dealers) but those who it back and want to relax and smoke a j after work, get fired for it isnt right. Fukuuuuu monty, its not like there was money in registers for them to steal or kids for them to be around like at some jobs. Monty you have something thats a vice or bad habit, you wont admit it Im sure but NOONE is perfect, and if you think you are perfect then just get a second opinion from someone other than your fat momma
