I don't agree. That's why they have job programs for ex-cons when they get outta prison so they can get employment. The problem is ex-cons don't wanna work for low pay and start at the bottom and they don't realize that you can move up to a higher pay if you wanna learn the skills for the high paying positions. Ving Rhames character worked at a restaurant in Animal when he got outta prison and i'm sure he was getting low pay because he was a janitor/cook because he was taking out the trash and cleaning and cooking a little bit. I'm sure he would've moved up to higher pay doing another position if the movie would've shown that.
