Fact check: Ex-offenders and Joblessness
In 2014, 7,600 inmates were released from Minnesota prisons. And we know that three-quarters of ex-offenders nationwide struggle to find a job, often taking up to a year. Joblessness can spell disaster—there’s too much at stake to let this happen.
Teaching Crucial Skills
Only 27 percent of Minnesotan ex-offenders have earned a high school diploma or GED, and only 22 percent have more education than that. Job and life skills are critical to building stable lives.
Filling the Gaps
Minnesota has one of the highest rates of African American overrepresentation in the prison system. And we have talent gaps in the workforce. We need to close the disparity gaps and put more skilled workers in jobs with sustainable wages.
