Crime doesn’t pay — jobs do

House Bill 1033 helps those who have committed misdemeanors and other nonviolent crimes, as well as certain people leaving prison, re-enter the workforce. We urge Gov. Phil Bryant to sign HB 1033 so Mississippi can continue to lead the way in criminal-justice reform and increase employment in our state.
