Power to Change host Charla Young spends part of her show talking with Michael Gritton, executive director of KentuckianaWorks, about laws that can be barriers to ex-offenders in finding jobs after release. He talks about a KentuckianaWorks program that can serve only 50 felons and other government programs that havea little funding to help ex-offenders.
Gritton says as the economy improves, employers in construction and manufacturing, who have hired workers with criminal records, may have more jobs. He advises building one-on-one relationships with several local programs to gain trust and get an advocate in helping find a job.
