Reap the Benefits

There are many benefits to hiring a formerly incarcerated individual, including loyalty, work ethic, tax credits, lower costs and more.

Hiring the Formerly Incarcerated Benefits All Americans

"Around 70 million Americans have some sort of criminal record. It means millions of Americans have difficulty even getting their foot in the door to try to get a job, much less actually hang on to that job. That's bad for not only those individuals—it's bad for our economy; it's bad for the communities that desperately need more role models who are gainfully employed. So we've got to make sure Americans who've paid their debt to society can earn their second chance."

— President Barack Obama
