Seriously this is 6 grand a year. That’s a fraction of what we would pay if they DO wind up recidivating. This is money well spent if it keeps any amount of people from having to go back to criminal acts to survive.

"Criminal acts to survive"

Are we still talking about US here? Nobody has to crime to survive in this country.

edit: people seriously expect those living in poverty to commit crimes? you people lack respect for those trying to climb the ladder in areas of concentrated poverty

Would you hire people with criminal record? Would your job,if u have one, hire people with criminal record?

If you're proposing pilot programs in which we pay / offer tax credits to companies that employ them,

then yes, I agree that sounds like a more effective option.

That's not what I said. I asked you if you or the place you work at would hire criminals?

You have clearly never been in enough poverty to do something you’re not proud of. Everyone that has been there knows.
