Prisoners getting more interviews than you

Posted by jtsmyth8 on March 20, 2008

This kind of upsets me. Why is a convicted criminal getting better opportunities for jobs than I am? These companies are looking for cheap labor and are willing to risk the safety of their employees to save a buck. How about paying a non-criminal a decent wage to work for you rather than a criminal?!

“Selected prison inmates no longer feel like they are on blind dates when they meet prospective employers to discuss jobs while still in jail. Under a new programme by the Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (Score), inmates and employers understand more about each other well before job interviews are held.” (story)
