Your Voice: What do you think of employing ex-convicts who have done their time? Would you hire one?
Michael Keys, Lithonia: “I would hire one if it wasn’t a violent crime; I would be hesitant if it was a violent one. I guess it would (also) depend on how long ago it was and how petty it was.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Diometra Williamson, Forest Park: “It depends on the crime. If it’s a violent one, I’d say no. I’d be interested in their psychological stance; how would they react if a customer was wrong? Would they pop off at a customer?” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Kaneesha Willis, Decatur: “Yes, I would hire one, I do believe that everyone deserves a second chance, and sometimes, when those guys and women are going into the system and coming back out, some of them have actually changed their lives and have become wiser.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
