Default Outside chance: Wisconsin has stepped up job training in prison

Outside chance: Wisconsin has stepped up job training in prison, but critics say its not enough

"When Jerome Dillard was released from prison, looking for a job meant stomaching rejection after rejection.

I put in, I would say, hundreds of applications in the first three months, and the only thing I could land was being a dishwasher, he said.

He picked up a night job working as a telemarketer to supplement his income. But he was barely making it.

That was in 1996, and the Wisconsin Department of Corrections has since stepped up its efforts to provide inmates with job training, hopefully giving them a boost as they plunge into the job market."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."

Better job training in jails is good, but the reality is that it's still woefully inadequate almost everywhere. And unless there are also measures to control the use of criminal records in the hiring process ('ban the box'), it won't help that much.
