I am an employer and in good times I have up to sixty employees. If they want to work, let them work. Anyone could become a criminal, even if they did something seen as historically acceptable Like protesting now vs. My suggestion would be that all jobs that involve child minding and other carer positions should be rubber stamped by an agency statutory body who would naturally have the right to view past records and not disclose, just say yes or no to the employer's recommendation. Lets get real here - there are plenty of honest people out there still worthy of employment.
The Law Institute of Victoria recently submitted a proposal to the state's attorney-general to introduce spent conviction legislation, akin to that which exists in other states. There are practical challenges employers confront as well, given ex-offenders may not have the education or skills employers are looking for, or have parole-related commitments that make it difficult to maintain regular work hours. This concept takes away the burden from employers when they assume the risk on an ex-con that wants to return to being productive member of society. In life, most people believe that they deserve a second chance. I sat on the floor, feeling defeated and frustrated.
I'd say the prisoners who don't deserve a second chance involve thieves who pre-meditate attacks, child molesters and sociopaths. This is in itself one reason to leave this kind of decision entirely with employers. Check yes - and you must check yes if it's true, because the background check will catch you in your lie - and it doesn't take a genius to guess what happens next. The second weakness I observed in my Informative speech was my lack of commanding the material…. I finally gave up, parked at a random store and switched seats with him.
There are many types of criminals and a societies moral beliefs and laws dictate whether or not they deserve a second chance. With the right help, people can leave crime behind them. My hair was the longest it had ever been, past my shoulders and I was still keeping it dyed blonde, it could use a trim though, my dark brown roots were starting to show. Maybe somehow not all of them deserve it but most of them do. When children commit crimes and are punished properly, they should learn that their action was wrong and not to do it again.
When Veterans come back home, all they want is a second chance at life again. I went from 160lbs to 200. Many employers seeing the box checked simply throw the application in the trash. Just hoping that the concept of this second-chance for criminals will change in the future. It is just like failing a test and giving another shot to pass it. Had they been caught, their crime would have followed them for the rest of their lives, prohibiting them for much of what they have subsequently achieved. Other companies are trying to attract and retain employees by providing transportation services to and from work sites.
With far fewer job openings than applicants, employers have been especially picky about who to hire, making it harder for job seekers with any marks against them—let alone a criminal history. Recidivism requires meaningful job opportunities to be combated, not joblessness and professional disdain. Should a criminal ever be able to have their slate wiped clean? Let us never throw another human being onto the proverbial dust heap. Once broken, its hard to extend that liberty to the person who broke it. If the person shows proof of rehabilitation why should we keep them pursing goals for the rest of their life.
This statistic shows how easily employers discard the applications of those who have a criminal history no matter what their qualifications. This Talking Point has now closed. If they withdraw a job offer after a background check, employers must submit a form to the state explaining why. In other words, do a crime and serve your time, with the ultimate hope - maybe next month, maybe ten years from now - of rehabilitating yourself and reentering society as a productive individual. Black applicants were even less likely than white applicants to get a job interview even when they had the same criminal histories, Pager found.
So, Everyone should have second chance! In Washington state, the unemployment rate for ex-offenders is 67 percent, but most employers are reluctant to hire ex-offenders for a variety of reasons. By us hurting them for them hurting us is barbaric because there will always be hate in the world with people wanting to hurt someone for what they have done. While we must sympathize with criminals, it does not mean that they must not be punished. The sad fact is though that in many respects this deeply held belief - the belief that even criminals deserve a second chance - is in actuality little more than a myth. The fact that I can't find work shows how flawed the system is. I think that it depends on the time they spend in the prison that they can change with flying colours. They hope more employers will follow their lead.
