β€œIt makes business sense to hire ex-offenders. Maryland has a significant labor shortage. We have historically low unemployment rates right now and it's incumbent upon employers to look at untapped, under-utilized markets to address this shortage.””
As former secretary of the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation, Tom Perez plays a significant role in promoting and establishing an ex-offender presence in the Maryland workforce. He knows all of the benefits, and is dedicated to providing the economic incentives to employers for hiring ex-offenders. Tom believes hiring ex-offenders is a win-win situation for employers and communities alike; not only are ex-offenders phenomenal workers, but Maryland provides a series of tax credits to help further encourage employers.
