Where I see the problem is with the double jeopardy that convicted Felons face when they get out of prison and a background check causes them to be ineligible for gainful employment. They have served their punishment by spending their time in Jail, how do they become a contributing member of society once they are out of jail/prison if they can't find a job?
That seems like a hard thing to deal with.

Who wants a convicted felon working for them? Would you want the convicted thief guy coming into your house to do work?

But on the other hand if they don't get some sort of gainful employment they will go straight back to crime even if they did learn a lesson. Self preservation is greater than all...
