Default Employment opportunities for ex-felons in San Diego

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have a list (or know where i could find one) of known companies that hire ex-felons in the San Diego area?

I know I've seen a list of companies in Northern Cali but haven't found anything for Southern Cali.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Tracy.

My Dad was given a pardon and will be out this coming November. I am so excited to see him out of bound. He's asking for a list of companies accepting ex felons. We'll be settling in Anaheim. Thanks a lot.
