I happen to be appying for such a position right now. You can't do the job w/o seeing personal information. This is a well paid position w/benefits in Texas. I agree that they need something to do, but why can't it be working on the roads, laying concrete, etc., That's a transferrable skill as well. It boils down to that saving 3.5 million a year.....hang the folks that have abided by the law looking for the good jobs out there. That's the climate of business today.
So these people has access to who knows what??????????????? Are you people totally mental giving them these jobs
There is no way they can hold this job and not have access to personal information.Name , .address, .car registration,.height, weight, gender, hair color,.birth data, marital status. With all that at their finger tips....what can't they find out??? State officials are just plain liars, and are putting people at risk.
The good new is the inmates are unquestionably more honest than the politicians now controlling New York.
So do they get shipped to India when released?To do the work they were trained for?
OK, well that explains it! How are you going to get any help from a Customer Service Rep. who has to ask permission to go to the bathroom?
Now just hold on a minute. The jobs the inmates are doing used to be done by law-abiding citizens but they were cut due to budget constraints. Part of the rationale is that these workers will be trained but what job will they get when they get out? The job they've been trained for is done by the prisons they just left so there will not be work for them when they get out, lol. Toss that rationale out.I'd rather that they let/make welfare recipients take over those jobs instead of convicts, those are the people who need job training.
New York!!!! What a great idea! Hopefully, Massachusetts might follow suit, but don't hold your breath
How can they say personal information isnt shared. You have to give them your name and address most likely and drivers license number? What about all those isnt personal?
Not a bad idea. Maybe California should try the same. Especially with their DMV. The worst ever. Inmates would improve the service a lot.
