    The Government doesnt care about that. One mistake ruins your entire life. God is coming.

    They want them to get stuck in a vicious cycle where they have to keep committing crimes.  It creates job security for a lot of government employees.

    Felons can get jobs, it is just harder for them and depending on the crime and when it took place they may be lawfully barred from certain jobs for security purposes.
