    I have talked to people in India. You are crazy.

    Bro, your mom chose not to spit you in the sink. She was the stupid one.

    I have to say, the Canadian system sounds sensible, the US one is rife with abuse.

    As for the original question, I don't know what field the person is trying to get a job in, but I do know that some companies recognize the system has problems and adjust their hiring practices accordingly, and some don't. Finding out which often involves starting at the bottom and showing your real character.

    I happen to know that Bushnell is very good at employment practices, but they may not be in your area.

    That being said, if the charge is aggrevated assault, causing bodilly... attempted etc etc... it's not gonna go well for him with even the more tolerant employers. There are always employers who gladly hire felons of all sorts, but typically those are the shittiest jobs. The crimes being overlooked are mostly white collar and minor drug offenses.

    In the U.S., because the system never forgets, I know of employers who even give a chance to somewhat more serious stuff, though I'm imagine rape and murder are a hard sell.

    I like the idea of the pardon you guys have up there. I think that's a great idea. People change and sometimes just do dumb stuff.

    Also, what constitutes a crappy job? It's all relative. Most people would hate my job. It physical labor and I deal with spoiled milk on a daily bases. On the other hand, I left a desk job working for Immigration and the sheriff's office to do it. Im happier now than I've ever been.

    As for the original question, we have a temp that's been working here for months that we want to get hired on. He's been turned down for full time employment once already because of some previous theft and drug charges. He's a decent guy and a hard worker. Much better than some of the guys that are already hired on here.

    It just depends on the company. It's unfortunate.
