Dear Next President,
Mr. or Mrs. President, I have a very important problem to address. This problem is about convicts not being able to get jobs as easily as others. I just don’t think that its fair for the convicts that have learned their lesson. Convicts with first time offenses should have the same chance to get a job as somebody with a clean record.
The first thing I have to say that supports this idea is that its common sense that if you can’t get a job then you’re going to have to resort to making money a different way Aka the illegal way. According to the Washington post drug crimes comprised 14 percent of all arrests and a miscellaneous category that includes “drug paraphernalia” possession comprised an additional 31 percent of all arrests. Did you know that 37% comprised the largest portion of male inmates under state or federal jurisdiction in 2013, compared to non-Hispanic whites (32%) and Hispanics 22%. Knowing those statistics and knowing that it’s hard for a Hispanic and a blacks to get jobs then you know it must be impossible to get a good job with a conviction on your back round record.
One thing we can do to easily stop the confusion is make prisons for inmates with violent crimes and prisons for non-violent crimes. This can make it easier for them to put that you spent time in a nonviolent crime prison on your record. This makes it more understandable for people that hire you for a job. Also if you went to prison for theft then it’s obvious no one would trust you to be a cashier or anything that works with money so go for something out of that field. If you went to prison for aggravated assault then you can’t be a school janitor because you’re around children.
So please Mr. /Mrs. President please considers this idea as something you can change. This idea will really make America look good. So good luck being president and together we can make America great again.
