So its bad enough that times are tough for all job hunters, but when your an ex-felon here in Geotgia your treated like trash a second citizen who doesn't deserve a place to live or a job to help support his family. I'm thinking of moving once I get a job and save up enough and I here that Oregon is suppose to be a better place especially if you like me had a sex offense in your past, and are trying to move on and start over. So I was wondering is there any other place out there where the job hunting is easier on us ex-felons? cause I'm willng to move.
