Many ex-offenders have difficulty finding stable jobs that lead to promising futures. Most lack information about opportunities appropriate for their red flag backgrounds. Once released, they often stumble from one low-paying and insecure "hard labor" job to another. Many have difficulty finding satisfying work and keeping a job for long.
