Occupational licensing is required for approximately 25% of U.S. jobs and those occupations often offer lower rates of unemployment and higher wages. However, Georgia’s current licensing law creates limitations for individuals with a criminal record when looking for employment with many of these licensed occupations.
On August 19th, Emmy Williams with the Georgia Justice Project will join MAX to discuss the opportunity and need for policy reform that will expand employment opportunities for many Georgians.
Join MAX on Friday, August 19th, 9:00 AM for a timely and virtual conversation.
