An editorial on the pilot project implemented at Collin’s Bay begins the discussion surrounding employment after incarceration. A second article sees five prisoners weigh in on the issue of revealing one’s criminal history to a potential employer. Parole is also examined in detail, including a section that answers prisoners’ questions about parole rules and regulations. The new pay scale is introduced along with an explanation as to how grades are determined.
