In our state (Massachusetts), CORI is in the news. Basicly, CORI lets a potential employer check on the background of potential employees. If you made a mistake 30 years ago, you will not get hired by most companies……period. Past offenders who have done their time are very upset because they can’t get honest work. I have been reading that some of them are very good workers, and that they work cheap because of limited options. I understand that in my state a lot of ex cons are finding minimum wage, food service jobs for small companies.
