What is The Best Route For Us?
My husband and I want to drive team, however he has a past felony from 2005. It's an assault charge, however, since a few years before we met he was getting his life back in order. I didn't think he would change when we met, but he has shown me how wonderful he is to me and his children.
Anyways, we're running into road blocks because of his past. He's employed now for 2 years, but won't be able to get the drive time he needs if he stays. Oh, and he's been recognized for actually changing and not just pretending to change. He does not drink, smoke, or use profanity.
My question is that I have assisted in the application process, but I'm not sure if we should just go to a school with a grant to get a CDL A and then worry about a job because he has one and will get some time... OR find a school that will take him, which I haven't been able to find an employer that will accept his change.
I get all of the talk about why gravitate to this field and felons shouldn't get a break, but I've seen companies get federal funding to hire such individuals. Where is the money going? To empty pockets or is there anyone actually out there that uses the funds and what would be the circumstance?
Would appreciate some input!
