If you're an employer, how do you employ a felon? On one hand, there is real risk to hiring someone with a criminal record on the other, there probably are quite a few people with lots of talent who just need a chance and a bit of structure. How do you catch people up who are lacking important core skills? What type of jobs could they be trained for?
This is a really important issue - particularly considering the statistics on the number of imprisoned people in the United States.
