Felony Employment Opportunities

Prepare to search the haystack for a needle because felony employment opportunities are a scarce commodity.

At the top of the google search results under this topic it says, "Felony jobs - $15-$98/Hour Jobs For Felons." Just three easy steps. This ad makes it sound like a felon hires out at a premium. The fact is this is an opt in page for an educational information site. How would you categorize suggesting $15-$98 an hour just to get a person to fill in their name and email address?

The next google listing states, "Felony Jobs - Search for Felony Employment postings." But if you click on this ad you find it is a job listing for a public defender to handle 4th degree felony cases in the Albuquerque, New Mexico, Felony Office.

The next listing in google search turns up, "Felony Employment," and when you click on it the top two listings are the same listings recited in the last two paragraphs of this article.

The haystack is a great place to search for a needle in one respect. The consideration puts in mind an honest appraisal of improbable odds.

There needs to be a training center somewhere that teaches felons and non-felons alike what the characteristics of a con job are, how con jobs work, and what scams consist of. This is needed because our public education does well to teach us to stand in lines, fill in forms, say correct things, but does nothing to school us on how to keep our fleece.

Articulation is a great skill. Learning to define wrongs and put them into perspective so that others might understand does not come with inexperience. Imagine someone who is raped making a rape complaint who does not know what rape is.

Too often felony employment opportunities are nothing more than opportunities to exploit felons who are making an attempt to re-enter society. They may have or not committed an act that entitles them to the prestige of a prejudicial category. Felons come with ready made handles society is at liberty to use to manipulate them. Too often these handles re-open the doors to re-imprisonment.

I would suggest that felony employment opportunities might be enhanced if the felon learns to hold society to the same expectations he is being held to. Everyone has a contribution to make and that contribution needs made in the arena a person is qualified to perform in.

The greatest danger is not from the so-called-felon, the greatest danger is from the felon who has not earned the title. It may be they who hide the needle farther into the haystack than necessary.

Joseph, my point exactly. The internet waters are so muddled, but the real responsibility falls on those of us who have not learned the mental discipline of detecting deceit and unscrupulous manipulation.

Reminds me of the old "Carnival Barkers" trying to draw crowds in to see the bearded lady. Marketers will try and do most anything to get you to turn your head and look. Whether that is the radio, television, magazines, internet or even the curcus.
