Is everyone okay with the term “low-level felon”?
Low-level felon = poor, underprivileged = slavery.

Someone should define “low-level felon” and someone should find out if they are allowed to be hired to the same job once they are released.

Someone should also find out if a person with a “high-level misdemeanor” could be hired. Then someone should compare “high-level misdemeanor” to “low-level felony”.

Of course, we could go on pretending this program is a positive for all involved. If that is true, how many women are currently offered the same “opportunity”?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
