Mark L. O'Brien

When our sentences end, people with criminal records are expected to return home and begin to support our families and selves. When I got out of jail, I started the hard work of rebuilding. I applied to over 60 jobs, but nobody would hire me. Broadly excluding workers with criminal records makes no sense.
