'They need to have more of these': Job fair for ex-cons draws thousands

A job fair for ex-felons in Dallas last week drew thousands of people looking for work, reported an AP story in the Houston Chronicle ("Dallas job fair helps ex-cons get second chance" Aug. 26). Employers left the event with sacks full of job applications from potential workers. Said one participant, "I think they need to have more of these ... The number of people they've got here today is enormous."
