Felony convictions complicate Tunican’s search for work
Finding a job to support her family is a puzzle 39-year-old Debra Smith has been determined to solve for nearly the past decade, she said.
It seems she has all the right pieces, according to her resume. She has nearly a decade of experience in the gaming industry, working in positions such as hostess cashier, cage cashier, and blackjack dealer. She also recently completed a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies from the University of Mississippi with minors in psychology, sociology, and history.
Smith said she is ashamed of what may be holding her back from better work opportunities.
“A year ago, I couldn’t see myself sitting here talking about this,” she said.
