Needless to say, warehouse ex-offenders are not a varied group; most often, those who were incarcerated for misdemeanor charges do not face the same stigmas as those with felonies and therefore still have much broader work prospects when released from jail. Those warehouse workers released from prison, however, are usually stuck in this low-wage profession because their rap sheet already eliminates many jobs from their list of options. For instance, anyone with a felony may not hold positions where there is interaction with children, nor can they perform jobs with much customer contact. Also restricted are jobs where the employee must handle significant amounts of money or expensive merchandise. So if you group all released felons into a type of job where there is: a) little to no customer interaction, b) no interaction with minors, c) no access to large amounts of cash or expensive goods, you are putting them into low-wage manual labor jobs away from the retail sector. Count out many jobs that require more skill such as construction, and suddenly warehouse positions become among the best options.
