The city of Detroit has high unemployment, and no one has a tougher time finding work than an ex-con.
So Detroit recently held a job fair strictly for ex-cons. More than 200 jobs were available, and no one who had not been convicted of a felony was eligible to attend.
I’m reminded of this from Norm MacDonald back when he did “Weekend Update” on Saturday Night Live:
In Detroit, under a new prison rehabilitation program called Fresh Start, employers will get a tax break if they hire an ex-convict. Employers who hire more than one ex-convict will get robbed and killed.
