I found your website and ur email and I live in Nashville TN, Link Antioch to be exact and I have one felony theft charge on my record. It all happened years ago and I am having trouble finding a job anywhere... even places like Burger King. If you know of any places in the Antioch / Nashville area that would be a good place for me to look I would be greatly appreciated.... I just turned 25 have a son that will be 6 in April and I need a job desperately. I have applied to so many places and Ive even tried lying on the application checking no in the felony question box to see if that would help.... Before my felony charge I worked at a Wal-Mart for a while and before that I used to help a buddy of mine laying floors. Carpet, hardwood, tile etc.... If you could help me at all I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
