While researching jobs for felons today, I came across an interesting article that talks about the impact of federal funding cuts on the state of Alabama.
In the article, by All Alabama website, the writer talks about the fiscal cliff looming at the end of 2012 and how it will adversely impact the state of Alabama. Apparantly, nearly 10 percent of all funding into Alabama state programs comes from federal funds. If the fiscal cliff does, in fact, occur, the funding to the state will be severely cut.
What does this mean to people who have a felony conviction?
It could impact the access to jobs that many people with felonies can acquire. While felons in the state of Alabama can not typically find work in government jobs, if the funding of the government programs are cut, it will impact the jobs made available to the private sector. This, in turn, will impact the job leads that are available to people with felonies.
If you have a felony conviction in Alabama, and if you are concerned about looking for a job in the coming new year, be sure to pay attention to the fiscal cliff activity and listen to your local news on spending cuts that may be imposed. If you find that certain sectors of business are going to be impacted, we recommend that you not waste time looking for jobs in those industries. Instead, change career paths or consider starting your own home based business.
2013 may be a year for economic recovery, or it may be a total meltdown. The fiscal cliff will impact felons looking for work, especially those in Alabama.
