Very good question... Something that we have been talking about when he get released.

They're mostly labor jobs, with low income. Or under the table jobs. No one wants to put our men on the payroll, to much of a risk I guess.

It's true. The companies get some sort of a tax break or something...I'd google it in your city. I did in mine, and hundreds of companies popped up that hire felons.
