Increased Obstacles to Find Employment

Share this:

Imagine you are in desperate need of a job to continue paying your bills. You have interviewed for over 20 promising jobs, but you can’t pass the background check because you have a felony drug conviction. This conviction is the direct result of your trafficking experience and follows you around to this day.

At this rate, you will likely fall behind on rent and may need to enter the shelter system. Thankfully, this felony conviction occurred in a state that allows for some felony convictions resulting from trafficking to be expunged. However, this process takes a lot of time and resources. There is hope for the day when you can apply to jobs without fear that this conviction will appear on your background check and be evaluated solely on your qualifications.
