Is there ANY place that will hire a felon?

Me and my husband live in West Palm Beach Florida and we have a 4 month old baby. I'm working but my husband can't find anywhere that will hire him because of something stupid he did when he was around 19 years old... (he stole copper out of a junkyard) Because of that stupid mistake he made as a kid, he now has a felony record and NOBODY will hire him. We've tried so many places and everyone keeps telling him no.... Can somebody please help me? We're trying so hard to get on our feet and we can't because of this... I dont know what were going to do if he can't find a job that will hire him despite his record.


He's 27 now

Update 2:

Sorry, I had the wrong information, he wasn't 19 he was 21, I thought he did it when he was younger. So it actually happened around 6 years ago.

      Your list of companies is not correct. I was a contractor for FedEx and could not hire my own drivers for MY own business because FedEx would not allow me to hire anyone with any kind of arrest record. Horrible company.

    This is my area of expertise and i will be happy to help i have some questions to ask first to get the solution..

    1. He was convicted over 7 years ago under FCRA they can only go back to that point not eight years unless he is applying for a govt job or a bank or childcare etc..

    2. He needs to ask for a copy of the file they found on him they have to comply by FCRA

    3. Employers are required by law to give you a decline letter

    4. EJ is correct you could possibly get this record expunged you can petition that court yourself and ask the judge you dont need and attorney unless they require that in your state.

      In regards to expungement, I don't suggest anyone attempt any legal process without professional assistance. Contact your local legal aid office for assistance.

    There are places that will hire, but the job market is so tight right now it may take awhile. You didn't say how old he is now, but there is a point when, if he has had no incidents, that he can get a lawyer and get that felony dropped. You may want to check with an attorney.

    Some places will, but many won't. Keep looking, and good luck.
