yep, the situation sucks, I know it all too well.
I gave up on looking for work and went into business for myself, I found that there are too many factors against me. The judicial system is banking
off of recidivism rates. They know damn well what the repeat offense rates are when you can't get employed. People need to eat and pay rent.
There are also more jobs available to others, less on assistance and unemployment when they can make them permanently unemployable.
You need to use their advantage against them. The internet. You can start small and resell junk on ebay or craigslist, or as much as I hate it, China.
Haggle for the buy, markup and sell. Grow your business and you will be doing good in a few years. If you can get ahead of a cheap lifestyle and save
you can build a better small business of your desire.
I know a guy with a bad background making over 500k a year. He did this by getting into the undesirable businesses.
He did mold removal, now he does bed bug remediation. It sounds gross, but he essentially shows up, has a crew gut the furniture, enters with a full
suit and puts heaters in. I think he charges in the 20k range for a day and a halves worth of work.
Making your own money is much better than trying to climb the ladder at a mindless cubicle job imo. Make their approval obsolete.
