Jobs for Felons: San Francisco to Wipe Away Decades of Marijuana Convictions

Jobs for felons: San Francisco to Wipe Away Decades of Marijuana Convictions



 San Francisco to Wipe Away Decades of Marijuana Convictions

SAN FRANCISCO—Thousands of people convicted of marijuana offenses in this city going back to 1975 will have their convictions dismissed or reduced, San Francisco’s district attorney announced Wednesday.





It marks one of the most aggressive moves to wipe away old convictions in the face of new laws legalizing marijuana in California and other states.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón said that his office would dismiss and seal 3,038 misdemeanor marijuana convictions, and review and possibly resentence 4,940 felonies—all of which were adjudicated before California voters legalized marijuana in 2016.

Under the state legalization measure, Californians can petition the courts to get old marijuana possession and other convictions dismissed. Mr. Gascón  said his office is taking the extra step of doing it for people in order to lift the burden of past convictions that can make it difficult for people to get jobs.

“A criminal conviction can be a barrier to employment, housing and other benefits, so instead of waiting for the community to take action, we’re taking action for the community,” said Mr. Gascón

Nine states and Washington, D.C., have legalized recreational marijuana use, and a debate has arisen over what to do with past pot convictions in these states.

In Nevada, where recreational marijuana was legalized, Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a bill last year that would have required certain offenses to be dismissed and sealed. Mr. Sandoval, a Republican, said in his veto message that such issues were better handled on a case-by-case basis.

In Colorado, prosecutors have raised concerns over bills making wiping away old pot convictions easier, said Arnold Hanuman of the Colorado District Attorneys’ Council.

“Many times convictions are plea bargained down from more serious conduct,” said Mr. Hanuman. “Our concern is that the original conduct involved in the incident is oftentimes more egregious.”

More states are including provisions in legalization measures for expunging past convictions, said Chris Lindsey, senior legislative counsel at the Marijuana Policy Project, which advocates for ending pot prohibitions. “This move by San Francisco is remarkable,” said Mr. Lindsey. “It’s not only do we allow people to repair their criminal histories, the local jurisdiction is just going to do it for them.”

Should all marijuana convictions be thrown out when marijuana becomes legal?

Jobs for Felons:Walmart closing 63 Sam's Club stores

Walmart is abruptly closing 63 Sam's Club stores and laying off thousands of workers

Jobs for Felons:Walmart closing 63 Sam's Club stores
Walmart is closing 63 Sam's Club stores across the US, the company told Business Insider.

Several stores were abruptly closed Thursday. In some cases, employees were not informed of the closures prior to showing up to work on Thursday.

Instead, they learned that their store would be closing when they found the store's doors locked and a notice announcing the closure, according to reports.


Ten of the affected stores will be turned into ecommerce distribution centers, and employees of those stores will have the opportunity to reapply for positions at those locations, a Walmart official said.

The remaining stores will stay open for several weeks before closing permanently. All of the affected stores were scrubbed from Sam's Club's website Thursday morning.

Sam's Club offered an explanation for the closures on Twitter, saying,

"After a thorough review of our existing portfolio, we’ve decided to close a series of clubs and better align our locations with our strategy. Closing clubs is never easy and we’re committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition."



The closures come on the same day that Walmart announced it was raising starting hourly wages to $11, expanding employee benefits, and offering workers bonuses of up to $1,000.

Here's a list of closures rounded up from local media reports and Sam's Club employees that contacted Business Insider. The list will be updated as we learn of additional locations.

A So-called "Felon" Speaks Out

 A So-called "Felon" Speaks Out


Frequently I get questions from ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs and job search assistance. From time to time I get mail form ex-offenders and felons just wanting to be heard. Take a few minutes and read something I received from a reader of this blog. Feel free to comment.


A So-called "Felon" Speaks Out


A So-called "Felon" Speaks Out



Dear Eric,

I’m writing in hopes of letting my story be known to help and encourage women of all ethnicities, cultures, socioeconomic status, and the alike. I was watching Mo’Nique's documentary entitled, “Women Behind Bars,” and saw myself. I don’t believe I’ve cried with such intensity in years and absolutely hate to see women placed in such testing predicaments. Having experienced adversity and can understand how simple it is to be caught within certain circumstances. But now I have a question I’d like to ask the world, a felon serving time, paying back debts to society or whatever discipline is necessary, I concur, but what else is expected of a felon when seen as a title and society won’t assist these human beings (felons) back into what is called a “forgiving world.” Living in Colorado, I have come to experience racism from many aspects, African American, female (educated), epileptic (disability), and a felon. With these characteristics defining me as a person, employment, or to suggest a second chance in the state of Colorado is almost non- existent. Employers in Colorado do not assist felons with employment necessary to pay back debts, live efficiently and evade recidivism, where most felons eventually return to a life of crime for a means of survival.

I for example, unemployed and being a convicted felon am ineligible for assistance. I’m curious to know what services, options, choices and the alike are available for cultured felons? To give a brief synopsis of my conviction; I plead guilty to and was convicted of a misprision of a felony in 2006 a crime committed by a young man in 2002. Misprison of a felony was an offense under the common law of England and was classified as a misdemeanor. It consisted of failing to report knowledge of a felony to the appropriate authorities. After the 9/11 tragedy, the United States, reinstated the Patriot Act, adopted and revised England's law of a misdemeanor "misprison of a felony" making it a felony and terrorist act to protect the country against further terrorists or terrorist acts (basically ourselves). Having knowledge of a crime or criminal, placed me in the category of being a terrorist threat to my country. Though it is documented a witness came forward in 2003 stating money was offered in exchange for my life, instead of providing protection for a US citizen, the government chose to convict and sentence a U.S. citizen for essentially not “snitching” and protecting the lives of her and her family. When we have no one in the country we can trust, who do we turn to? When families are afraid and fear for their lives added with the lives of their children (i.e. domestic violence homicides) and the government deems the victim(s) as a terrorist or their actions a terrorist act, where do we go and what do we do to protect our own?

Having no prior criminal history, I was sentenced to one year in a woman’s federal facility in Fort Worth, Texas (released October 2007) and one year probation (completed 2008). Since my release in 2007, I completed and received a B.S., in Criminal Justice with an emphasis in Domestic Violence and Juvenile Delinquency. Wanting to increase my awareness and familiarity of family, I directed my career objective to counsel women and children; and enrolled in Argosy University where (passing the necessary exams) I will receive an MBA, LPC in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in September of 2012. While attending school full-time, I volunteered with Bridges of Silence; an after school tutoring program for children and youth; ages 6-18. But ineligible for hire due to a felony back ground. At the same time, I completed training to obtain certification for CPR, Standard First Aid, and Blood Pathogens.

Now having a criminal history, I will use my story as an example for others to follow when making what could be life changing choices. I was what most considered “The All American Girl” born in the United States, first job at the Mall, age sixteen, honor roll, track star, peer counselor, comedian, prom queen, and later registered to vote, age eighteen. I like to think I was a model citizen until my choices lead me to a path of devastation. I made a mistake in my choice of friends, relationships, life in general and feel I owe it to society, in particular, the younger generation to emphasize the importance of where our choices, positive and or negative, could eventually lead us. Working with and empowering children is a difficult task, and is not encouraged when one has a felony record. I do discourage convictions involving children, but rather, use a conviction such as my own, to dissuade children from following the same path. I am often discouraged from many job openings with children for discrimination purposes as all of the applications clearly specify, “a felony conviction does not automatically disqualify employment,” however, having that title automatically places a negative stigma amongst employers, volunteers, and society as a whole.

Seeing the displacement of children and adolescents due to their wrong or bad choices isn’t the example I want to lead by. Rather, be that example to demonstrate that “yes” I made a bad choice, but a bad choice does not make me a bad person. If I had put some thought into my decisions, then I would not have made those mistakes. But, it’s too late, “I am unable to take it back,” however, I can grow from it. My purpose in life now is to give back, and help deter others from making the same mistakes I did.

The state of Colorado seems to be the least forgiving state of felons; the entire realm of felonies should be classified separately, but are grouped and stigmatized as all being a nuisance to society. These stigmas may be the foundation to many felons either falsifying the fact of having a conviction or falsifying their credentials, where even “I” have been informed of being, “over qualified.” Whom do felons go to for help or work? No one wants to hear our side; they look at the title and automatically make assumptions as to who you are as a person!

President Barack Obama signed into law on April 9, 2008, the Second Chance Act (P.L. 110-199) which was designed to improve outcomes for people returning to communities from prisons and jails. We as citizens were lead to believe it was intended to authorize federal grants to government agencies and nonprofit organizations to provide employment assistance, substance abuse treatment, housing, family programming, mentoring, victims support, and other services that can help reduce recidivism. However, this Second Chance Act is nonexistent in the state of Colorado, evident on every application as emphasis is placed on “a felony conviction does not automatically disqualify an applicant,” but, very well guarantees the likelihood of your application not being viewed.

I’ve accepted responsibility for the crime I committed, and owe it to future generations to help deter them from possibly making the same mistake in their lives. I want to be of assistance to my country, not be on assistance. I have been told being a convicted felon makes me ineligible for assistance in the state of Colorado. Does it help or hinder the situation, single, without children, and refusing to claim epilepsy as a disability? I’m asking for assistance in finding employment in the state of Colorado, and for a second chance that will allow me to go forward and give the necessary message to our children. Though my crime had nothing to do with children, I was recently informed that my felony conviction will not allow me to be eligible to counsel children.

Confused, as a felon I am an excellent candidate for a volunteer and or mentor for children, but the title felon suggests I also pose a threat to children and society as a whole. Once again, felon is a title, it is not who I am. Thank you for taking the time to read and absorb my story. The moral of the story is felons are people to, and we should be treated as such. The only difference between me and others without the title of “felon” is I was wedged between a rock and a hard place. A movie I recommend for all Americans is “Loose Change.” Then when it comes to you having to make that choice for your family, what choice will you make? Will your government (country) be there for you as you are expected to be for your government (country)?

Sincerely,

Tina L.

Ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs; How to tie a tie

Ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs: How to tie a tie

Ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs: How to tie a tie

Former DA's widow joins suit drive for ex-offenders

People do tend to judge books by their covers.  I have helped thousands of ex-offenders and felons get jobs and the most important interview advice I give is for them to look their absolute best.  The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one. The interviewer will first judge you on how you look. It's always important to dress professionally for a job interview, even if the work environment is casual.  You will never get a second chance to make a first impression

The person dressed in a well fitting suit, tie and shined shoes is going to make a much better impression than the person dressed in jeans, a t-shirt and boots.  You'll want that first impression to be not just a good one, but a great one. Looking like a professional will make the interviewer focus on you rather than the fact that you have a record.  Unfortunately I meet too many people who cannot tie a tie

A tie is a powerful tool that can help ex-offenders and felons get jobs!

Giving Building Materials and Ex-Inmates

a Second Chance in Baltimore

Greetings,

I was able to read your website, and I am interested in your philosophy. I am a 28 year old felon in Alabama. My crime was credit card fraud and ID theft. Since it was my first conviction, I was granted 1 year parole with court costs. Even though the punishment is light, I am unable to find a job to help pay off the dues and support my family.

I have learned of the Federal Bonding Program, but it doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere. I have been on many interviews where I have put the crimes on the application, but they insist on running a background check, which of course comes up with the convictions. Then they say that I cannot be hired, even though it was on the application before you ran the social security number through. 

I keep trying somehow, someway everyday; and, I am not picky about jobs. I apply for general labor positions as well as a way to get on my feet. I apply with resumes and cover letters. Is there something else I am missing? Any advice would be welcome.

Sincerely,

Jay

Job Opportunities for Felons


Hello Jay,

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble. Finding a job unfortunately is not an exact science. Finding a job with a criminal record is even tougher.

I suggest to all ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to tell everyone they know that are looking for employment. Many people got their job leads from people they know. This is called networking. Networking is the most effective method of finding employment leads. Most jobs are never advertised because they are usually filled by personal contacts. In fact, employers would rather hire someone referred to them by people they know rather than to painfully sort through resumes and applications. How many people do you know? Each one of them could potentially help a felon get a job.

• Friends
• Relatives
• Neighbors
• Parole/probation officers
• Members of your religious group (especially ministers, priests, imams, etc.)
• Former teachers
• Former co- workers
• Former employers
• Classmates
• Casual acquaintances
• People you do business with (Hairstylists, barbers, doctors)

Look at the list above. In each group, list five people that you can contact. That is at least 55
people that could help you in your job search. Let each person know that you are looking for a job
and that any information they have for you would be helpful. Have copies of your resume handy
for your contacts to give to other people.

Another suggestion is to locate your local Goodwill. Goodwill hires ex-offenders and ex felons everyday giving them an opportunity to re-enter society.

I suggest to all felons looking for jobs to visit their local One-stop Career Center.  At the center you will find services than can help you find a job including resume preparation, interviewing skills and lists of available jobs in your area.  The center has counselors that provide one-on-one  assistance to get you on your way.  The counselors can also put you in contact with resources that could help you with your growing family.

You can find the center nearest to you at the link below

Temporary Agencies are a good Choice for Ex-offenders and Felons

Temporary Agencies are a good Choice for Ex-offenders and Felons


Temporary Agencies are a good Choice for Ex-offenders and Felons

Temp agency faces discrimination suit from African-American job seekers

Several of my blog posts make reference to ex-offenders and felons using temporary employment agencies to find jobs.  Often when temporary employees prove to be good workers, employers are willing to hire them as regulars.

I teach my students that there is a strategy to using temporary agencies to get jobs. There are temporary agencies that handle just about any type of work you can think of.  There are others that are agency specific for example, there are some agencies that cater to the medical field and others may cater to restaurants and food service.  Check your local telephone directory to get a list of agencies in your area.

For an ex-offenders or felon, the approach to getting hired has to be a little different than a regular job seeker.  From my point of view, there are two types of agencies, nationwide agencies and local, independently owned companies.

Nation-wide Agencies

Below is a list of nation-wide temporary/permanent employment agencies with links to their respective websites:

Net-Temps

Net-Temps has a great site that allows job seekers to find their offices in multiple states and has listing of available jobs according to interest.

Manpower

Manpower has been in the temporary staffing business for over 60 years and is an industry leader.  The site allows job seekers to search for positions by interest, skills and location.

Labor Ready

Temporary Agencies are a good Choice for Ex-offenders and Felons
Every year, Labor Ready sends approximately 400,000 Temporary Associates to jobs in construction, manufacturing, hospitality, events, restoration, auto services, logistics and warehousing, retail support, waste and recycling and more. Labor Ready has more than 600 locations.  Greater than 225,000 businesses of all sizes throughout North America use Labor Ready for their staffing needs.  Labor Ready is the leader in employing ex-offenders and felons.  Their website will help you find your nearest Labor Ready office.

Adecco USA

Adecco has over 400 career centers and, on a daily basis connects 70,000 talented workers to the best employment opportunities across the country, making them one of the country's largest employers.  You will find employment opportunities in marketing, customer service and telemarketing, hospitality, industrial and manufacturing, medical, office and administrative, transportation and warehousing and many more categories.

Kelly Services

Kelly Services employment to 550,000 employees annually and is an industry leader in providing temporary employment worldwide.  The website allows job seekers to find the nearest Kelley Services office.

This is just a small list and some allow job seekers to apply online or submit resumes.  I'm not sure exactly what their respective policies are regarding hiring ex-offenders and felons.

Independent Agencies

Independent agencies, in my opinion, offer the best opportunities for ex-offenders and felons to get hired.  Often the larger corporate agencies have corporate policies that forbid the hiring of an ex-offender or felon.   With smaller companies, you will more often than not interview with the owner or manager that has the power to hire anyone that person feels is best for an assignment.

Make a list of temporary agencies in your area from the telephone book.  Visit them and apply just as you would any other job.  Have your resume with you to leave along with your application.

Remind the interviewer that you can be bonded by the Federal Bonding Program.  The Federal Bonding Program encourages businesses to hire at-risk, hard-to-place job seekers by providing insurance policies that protect against employee theft or dishonesty.  Refer to the video below for more information on the Federal Bonding Program.


Jobs for felons and ex-offenders will be a lot easier to get when they know where to find real job leads. Ex-offenders and felons can use the tips in the video above to find leads for jobs.

The Federal Bonding Program can help felons get jobs.  Jobs will be easier to get if employers know that that felons can be bonded.  You will find more on the Federal Bonding Program here:

www.bonds4jobs.com



Also remind the interviewer about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.  The employer would be eligible for a tax credit of up to $2,400 for hiring you if you have been released in the past year.


 Temporary Agencies are a good Choice for Ex-offenders and Felons




The video above contains very good information for using temporary agencies to find work


This video tell how temporary agencies work.  Felons can use temporary agencies to get jobs.



More and more employers are turning to temporary employment agencies to find good employees.  Temp agencies are a great place for ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to get hired.

Felon needs job and career direction

Felon needs job and career direction

Felon needs job and career direction
U.S. Attorney pushes job training for former inmates
Hello,

My name is Dominique. I'm 23 and am a convicted felon. I was charged in 07 out of prison in 08 and discharged from parole in 09... I have been clean on sober since been incarcerated. Although I don't have any drug charges that was the cause of my mishaps.

I went to a regular college for a little bit but I felt things were going too slow and I needed something to show for my age and enrolled in a Tech school for an Administrative Office Professional degree.  It's a fancy way of saying secretary. I am graduating at the end of the month and just don't feel like that will be enough for me and my life. I want to continue in business but didn't really have a kind of business in mind. I have always been interested in helping people and was looking into a mortuary science degree. It will be a few years before I can complete the prerequisites and then the program, but after that will any doors actually be open for me? I was doing some reading and it's going to be a very difficult road. I don't know what to do.

I am from California and was wondering if you knew anyone out this way I could talk to. I also read that from my discharge date I had to wait 7 years to file for a certificate of rehabilitation and then from there I can see about getting my record expunged. 7 year!? I have to wait that long to start my life and there is no guarantee. I can't afford to do that and am desperately seeking help in this matter.  Is there ANYTHING I can do?


Felon needs job and career direction


Hello Dominique,

Do not assume your record will hold you back. If you want to be a mortician, you should find out if you conviction will prohibit you being licensed. Don't assume it will.

You can more information here:

California Cemetery and Funeral Bureau

Next I suggest speaking to a legal professional about the expungement process. Many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs seek legal assistance before starting an employment search. You can get free or nearly free assistance at you local legal aid office. You can find you nearest legal aid office ion you local phone book.

Even if being a mortician isn't in the cards for you, working in an office environment will give you experience and the opportunity to meet people and build contacts.  Who know what opportunities will open up for you

Felon wants job as a Teacher

Felon wants job as a Teacher

Hello,

I was wondering if you know whether or not a felon can become a high school teacher in Illinois or Oregon? My husband was convicted of residential burglary when he was 17 (as an adult) but has not been in any trouble since.  He is now 31.

Thank you for your time.




Felon wants job as a Teacher


Felon wants job as a TeacherToo many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs make the assumption that they cannot get jobs because of their records.  I suggest that he contact the local school board to find out for sure if his conviction would keep him from being certified and hired as a teacher.  If it indeed does, there are other options for and felons wanting careers as teachers.

Community colleges, adult learning annexes, charter schools and private schools are great places to start. They usually have fewer regulatory restrictions than public school systems.  There is also a growing trend toward career schools that are always looking for trained instructors.  Don't assume that because you have a criminal record, you cannot become a teacher.


I hope this helps.

Do you have any ideas? I am going through the motions now and have many more things I want check out tomorrow online but if there is any advice that you might be able to give I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

Felon Can't find a job as a Cook

Felon looks for job as a Cook

Felon Can't find a job as a Cook
Hello sir,

I have many years experience as a cook. I even worked in the kitchen when I was incarcerated. Even with all of my experience, I can't find work. I filled out many applications but I have not found anything. I really enjoy cooking. I need some help.

Felon Can't find a job as a Cook
A lot of people are looking for work. Please don't give up. Sometime ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs have to be a little creative.  I suggest getting your local telephone directory and make a list of all of the restaurants and bars/grilles in your area. Visit each one of them and inquire about open positions. Even if they don't have any openings, leave your contact information and make yourself available for on-call work. If you can, have personal business cards made up for you to leave with everyone you speak to.  Often restaurants are in trouble when employees for some reason or another cannot make it to work. You could fill in on an as needed basis. I'm sure if you do a good job, you will be at the top of the list when an opening arises.

 If you cannot find employment right away, consider working as a temporary employee.  Many permanent jobs are filled by people who started as temp employees.  If you do a good job, are punctual and have a good attitude, you may be hired as a regular employee. Check you local telephone directory for  temporary agencies to apply to.  There are even agencies that specialize in the hospitality industry.  Apply just as you would any other job.  Bear in mind that a felon stands a better opportunity by applying to smaller independently owned businesses that larger corporate companies.

  A felon finding a job will be easier with hard work and the right attitude.

I hope this helps.
