So here’s my question or my rant. I have a felony for receiving stolen property. This constitutes willingly and knowingly receiving more than $400 but less than $15000 worth of stolen property. I can not find a job that pays more than $8 an hour. Most of those low paying jobs I still won't be considered for. I am a highly intelligent, hard working, mechanically minded person. I can figure most things out on my own simply by reading and researching. I have applied for dozens and dozens of jobs over the past 3 months many of which I was more than qualified for but wasn't even considered because I have a felony. My felony is from 1994. The only reason I have a felony is because I had a shitty attorney. Anyone who knows anything about the justice system knows that you can have 2 people with the exact same charges and the one with the good attorney will almost certainly get entirely different treatment than the person without a good attorney. I can't live on $8 an hour. Just do the math and you'll see what I mean. Living on the street is no way to live. I don't have children and I am not close to my family. If I can't work or ever be given a chance to work a decent rewarding job then what the fuck is life worth living for? I don't want to leave this world but its really becoming clear that this world doesn't want or have a place for me.
