I don't know about you guys but I think this is a really good move. Some people in prison learn a lot, and spend a lot of time studying, and then they have serious trouble getting a job when they get out. Even more plan to not offend, but their criminal past means they can never get a job so they resort to stealing again. It's a vicious circle and it's nice to see that some states are taking steps to stop it.
So thank you Georgia, and the other 12 states to sign up to this, that have said they're willing to give ex-cons more of a chance than ever before. Hopefully this is a good step and leads to less re-offenders and a more efficient and effective prison system.
Could you work with an ex-convict? Would you even be able to tell you were working with one if you didn't know?
