because the religious community says to forgive and not to judge...they are pretty hard up for members...

back in the day...the same community would have executed such social rubbish...

so you are a felon?

you would be thankful for help...

you say people on disability are lazy? and yet you want disability?

the reason most likely why the govt. denied you is not because you are a felon, but because your ignorant bum was locked up and as a result you were not working and paying in to your quarters...

disability is not welfare...you pay into that trust..

Try that new place on Nameoki. Industrial One. I believe they hire felons, I could be wrong. They do labor work. I'm not exactly sure if your still able to do that work or not, but hey worth a shot right? You can also search on Google places that hire felons. Good luck to you.

This is a bad place to come to with a bad story.Too many people from different walks of life are here.
If you are disabled and can no longer do your job,you will get disability.
You say you worked as a union laborer your entire working life.What about those benefits.
I know a lot of union trades people,and I know anyone can get ss disability,hell they give it away like play money.

Thank you both for the advice. Sad and unfortunatly I cant really do my old work or much of anything else. I didnt post that as a sob story. It just pisses me off that deserving people get denied. My trade benifits is how I have survived tje last year, and my awesome wife.

I can understand felons needing some type of assistance for getting jobs. But rent? No.
Felons should have thought about the consequences before they committed the crime.
