Jobsworth

Half of all employers wouldn't hire someone with a criminal record[1]. The unemployment, low self-esteem and financial dependence that result are secondary punishments after prison[2]. Finding work makes a person up to 70% less likely to reoffend[3]; that's what a JOB’S WORTH. 

  

[1] YouGov and Department for Work and Pensions (2016).   An earlier 2010 survey by Working Links of 300 employers found that only 18% had hired someone with a criminal conviction during the previous three years, and almost three quarters admitted that a conviction disclosure would culminate in rejection of that applicant in favour of a similarly qualified candidate without convictions (Working Links, 2010.) https://centreforentrepreneurs.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Prison-Entrepreneurs-Report-WEB-1.pdf [2] With the result that only 17% of ex-offenders are in stable employment a year after leaving prison: Ministry of Justice (2018) Education and employment strategy [3] https://cleansheet.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Clean-Sheet-Annual-Report.pdf; Chant, J. Lockhart, G. Ullman, B. (2008) You’re Hired!  Encouraging the Employment of Ex-offenders. Policy Exchange Research https://www.policyexchange.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/youre-hired-sep-08.pdf; also of note in this context is that 68% of ex-offenders themselves consider a job the single most important factor in reducing their risk of reoffending - https://centreforentrepreneurs.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Prison-Entrepreneurs-Report-WEB-1.pdf;  Social Exclusion Unit (2002) Reducing Re-offending by ex-prisoners  http://www.nlgn.org.uk/public/wp-content/uploads/reducing-reoffending.pdf
