Most - if not all - ex-offenders in the warehousing industry hold low-wage entry-level positions, especially if they are temporary hires. Often, these workers are seen as being completely expendable, not equal, and only used until no longer needed. This attitude taken on by many employers and fellow employees means that the margin for error for these kind of worker is almost nothing. There are hundreds waiting to take any position that opens up, so employers are not shy at all about firing these men and women. Because of their past, many ex-offenders come to work each day with something weighing on their mind; it could be their remaining dues, their poor families, or their lingering health issues. In some instances, follow-up legal hearings drag the worker from their job repeatedly, leading to spotty work attendance. Other times, they are re-arrested for minor infractions that were too tempting to pass up. Sometimes, the employee is fired for any minor confrontation at work, because they may have a history of violence. Ex-offender employees may also struggle adjusting to their new responsibilities at work, as well as simple things such as being on time for things. Dealing with these things daily causes numerous slip-ups on their part, which are not looked upon lightly, but rather solved simply by terminating them. There is a lower tolerance for these kinds of workers because of their reputation, their history, and simply their label as temporary workers.
