I'm a 54 year male, who has worked since he was 17. I battled a drug , and alcohol problem for many years, but always maintained my job!
I was arrested for a crime I admitted to, and served 5 years for it, getting the help I needed! I am not proud of what I did, but not ashamed to say that it saved my life! I just want a chance to prove myself, and show I'm a better person for it! Unfortunately we have a little problem called discrimination!
At my age, I could work most employees under the table! Everybody deserves a second chance! Too bad the Family Dollar company, and many others like them, don't feel the same way! Which is why the unemployment rate is the way it is!
People like me have more to prove to society than anyone else! But only if we're given the chance!
I speak for everyone in my position!!!!! Thank you!
