You can just go and get one. I have my CDL and have a felony. I was able to get work with a moving company in Manhattan. I don't know where you live and if the laws are different but in ny it's cool. What you can't get until atleast 7 years post coviction is a HAZMAT endorsment.

somewhat by accident I ran into a man at home depot who heard me whining about problems that were overwhelming me in trying to take care of my home after my husband died. He offered to come out and look at some trees that needed to be taken down, he was working as a tree surgeon. He came out, did the work very well, worked hard arrived on time etc. and I was very pleased. a friend of mine without my knowledge did somewhat of a background check on this man and found he had a past conviction record. I kept this info to myself and decided to give this man a chance. that was several years ago and he consistenly helps me and I pay him a fair amount and it has worked out well. he is a great worker skilled in many types of tasks like plumbing, tree work, pretty much a super handy person. recently he felt comfortable enough to tell me about his past, I didn't let him know that I had some knowledge of his troubled youth. he continues to help me out each week and this allows me to stay in my home. I feel badly that he can not find steady good paying work with health and pension benefits and that because of mistakes he made when he was young and immature really cost him so much because he really is an outstanding hard worker and very smart. he cobbles together a living, saved and bought a home and struggles through this recession to keep it. he does more work in an hour than three men.

As for helping people who are just out of jail or felons get jobs....there are no programs to help people with misdemeanors get jobs. Or, what if you have an arrest record, but the case was dismissed or dropped. It still shows up on a background check.

A back round check for employment consist of convictions, they can not ask or hold arrest against you. Remember you are innocent until proven guilty, so anybody can be arrested but if you were not convicted it means you did nothing wrong " meaning on paper" that's what matters. This is for most jobs. If you are going into government jobs or things like that they may do further investigation into you. Also misdemeanors are rarely a problem, if asked at all.

I am a 40 year old with two advanced degrees. I worked hard to go to college for 8 years and I am cannot find a job due to the following...bad credit, and some shoplifting charges. To top it off, I am Diabetic and a cancer survivor. Too risky for health insurance. I finally realized I had to do my own thing to make a living so I am making money doing stand up and writing. I got lucky. I think our society has made it too easy NOT to hire people with the ease of learning everything about people with social media and google. I made a mistake and if not for my own creative abilities, I would be homeless. This is sad.
