What Jobs That U Can Get That Pays 10.00 an Hr Being a Felon?

Question by princessbrown237: what jobs that u can get that pays 10.00 an hr being a felon?
I have a drug charge and it’s holding me back from being something i want to be. I want to be a medical assistant, or something in the medical field. i’ve heard rumors that i can’t do that because of my charge. i’m a single mother and it’s hard to take care of my 5 month old with only making 7.00 an hr and paying rent / car note / care insurance / utility bills. I want to better my career for me and my son so i can get him the things i need without having to go in debt or not having a place to stay because of my background.

I realize you’re struggling, but many people are around the US also. If there were less people needing a job like you want, you could probably establish yourself and get into the medical field. But with today’s economy, you’d best get what you can.
