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.

Hello Kevin, You're definitely not the only person on Jobcase going through this. There's a group just for ex-offenders on Jobcase if you'd like to join: https://www.jobcase.com/groups/EFDAAB25684C498FB2AFCC626B1E30C4

Here's a fantastic resource specifically for ex-offenders in the world: https://exoffenders.net/. This website was created to help folks in your position learn about their options and give them the tools they need to re-enter the workforce. They also offer a really helpful list of companies that are known for hiring ex-offenders: https://exoffenders.net/employment-jobs-for-felons/.
