"Employers Can You Give The People With A police Record A Break"
I don't condone the acts that the felons or misdemeanors have committed, but to the ones that has paid their debt to society, I think they should be able to find gainful employment; to make a living, just like regular citizens. My son got caught with pills on him at school at seventeen and things and kind of gone down hill for him, because of the arrest record. His arrest record causes him problems of being hire for legitimate work even though, he's a hard worker. I feel really sad for people like my son, that made a dumb mistake and is still paying for it. There are people out there that are willing to work hard on a job, only if they can get the opportunity to do so. These people need a job, to make money to survive, but they can't because no one want to give them a chance because of their police record. We all have to remember, one day someone gave us a chance to prove ourselves, this is how we make work records,by getting hired by an employer and working the job a certain length of time.
Society want people with records to get work and become model citizen, but how can they do it, if the employer want give them a chance to prove themselves. Sometimes, people with records go back to jail because they feel like they don't have any other choice , because no one will hire them. We want to be upset when some of them turn back to wrong doings to try and survive, but they feel like their backs or against the walls, especially if they have families.Maybe if there were more employers willing to open up there heart to help someone in desperate need of employment, people with police records might have another chance at life. No one knows how hard and frustrating to be constantly turn down for employment because you have a police record, it's hard to keep a positive attitude, but you can't give up.
I know son is a very hard worker, if only given a chance to prove himself. If I only knew someone in the Dallas area, that would help him out. I told him,since he don't have a car, to just walk around from from institution to institutions to put in applications and someone would hire him soon or later. It's disheartening to be turned down day after day,even though you're trying. Employers please give these people an honest break, they have to survive too.
