Default Work advancing on prison-industry partnership

Work advancing on prison-industry partnership, head of Justice Cabinet says

The head of the state Justice and Public Safety Cabinet said last week the state is progressing on its effort to create partnership with industries in state prisons, where inmates would receive near private sector wages and job training.

That initiative was part of Senate Bill 120, which was approved by legislators during the 2017 General Assembly. The bill has several components, including allowing jails to create "re-entry centers" of their own and allowing inmates to receive professional licenses.

I really like that one stipulation is that the inmates chosen to participate are hired upon release
