Dinner at Edwins: Fine-dining French restaurant giving former criminals a second chance

quote [ It’s believed that Edwins, a French restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio that opened in 2013, is the only high-end restaurant in the United States where ex-offenders make up the majority of the staff. And in addition to serving up delicious examples of French cuisine, these former criminals are learning valuable skills to help them get a second chance in life. ]

I've never understood why criminal records would even conceivably be available to employers. I can certainly understand the selfish desire for it, but it seems a clear and obvious net social harm.

I can see why an employer would not want to hire someone with a white collar crime conviction.

It's been done before.

I hope it will be done again, many times.
