Yes. Unless you are actively murdering people, or have threatened to burn down said establishment, you can get a job at McDonalds.
Or better yet, you could get a job at Wal-Mart. They hire anyone, and pay out a bit better than Mickey-D's. Two people working 40hrs/wk at Wal-Mart will likely make $45,000/yr or greater once they've been there for a few years.
45,000k only comes after almost 10 years. And what if they have a kid or two. Then it becomes almost impossible to live. And you usually start off with only 15-18k.
