Many felons ask us the question “Are there any jobs that hire felons?”
Yes! There are jobs that hire felons.
The very first thing you need to understand is that most minimum wage jobs will not hire felons.
We believe that this is because you will most likely have direct contact with the customer. This can be too much of a risk for those companies, however the higher paying jobs usually do not mind ($10-$30 per hour). This is because most jobs that are between $10-$30 per hour are most likely at factories. These jobs take advantage of the tax break they receive from hiring a felon.
Most of the time these jobs are simple to get. Just keep putting in the effort. If you have a higher education you will be more likely to land a job despite your felonies. Mostly because those with an education have a broader range of skill sets. This is because there are less people able to do the work that you can do.
Will all this information you should understand that most minimum wage jobs will not hire you, but for everyone of those there is an opportunity just waiting for you. If you can’t get a job then try college.
Many offenders that we know are taking engineering classes. Within a year they are working in a factory making around $15 an hour. We have seen this time and time again.
These jobs have NO BACKGROUND checks, which prevent most felons from finding decent employment!
