I think that jobs should Not be able to ask if you have a felony unless you are applying for a job that involves a child. My husband was convicted of Attempted Armed Robbery in 2001, served some time in prison and learned his lesson. Now 32 years old, getting a good job is impossible in Oklahoma. He has a job which pays minimum wage and is one of their star workers. Employment goes a long way toward motivating anyone, but especially people like him since he loves to work and finds it vastly fulfilling. In a way, the prison term he served was not his punishment; rather, a lifetime of discrimination is his punishment, and a very heavy burden.
