If criminals have done their time and no one will hire them, and they can’t make any money, what do you suppose they will do?
Jail is for punishing criminals, but once they have paid their debt, they shouldn’t continue to be punished.
One last thing, sex offenders could never be a teacher or work with kids regardless because they couldn’t get a license.

I’m not against giving someone a second chance if they’ve paid their debt to society, but we need to be clear just what they’ve done.

A shoplifter or someone who sold dope would get a different standard of scrutiny than a serial rapist.

There are many unemployed people out there for every available job today. Why should we hide or camouflage a criminal or his record from a perspective employer.
Sorry, when they do the crime there is always a price to pay. Some of that price a criminal must pay is over and above what the court orders. If you steal money you are a thief for life. That title does not go away after you serve a few months in jail. A known thief will never get a chance to steal from me if I can help it. The simple fact is that those people who have been caught and convicted for committing a criminal act will pay in the future for what they have done in the past. Why do criminals think they should get a "front of the line pass" in life. Not from me.
