    Yeah, and they're non-existent for an entire 'other' class of individuals.
    One-third of all Americans now have a criminal record keeping them from employment.

    The FBI’s definition of criminal record

    The FBI considers anyone who has been arrested on a felony charge to have a criminal record, even if the arrest did not lead to a conviction. The FBI only counts those with a misdemeanor if a state agency asks the bureau to keep it on file.

    So by the FBI’s standard, 73.5 million people in the United States had a criminal record as of June 30.

    The Census Bureau lists the adult population in the United States at 249.4 million. That means the FBI considers about 29.5 percent of adults to have a criminal record.
