The Manufacturing Institute (MI) in partnership with Bexar County’s Department of Economic and Community Development and Office of Criminal Justice Policy will collaborate with four Texas manufacturers to implement a “Second Chance” hiring pilot program. The pilot program is aimed at increasing opportunities in the industry for workers with criminal records and will help attract overlooked candidates into Texas’s manufacturing sector.
The program will recruit and give training to justice-involved individuals to access employment opportunities at various manufacturing companies, including Forma Automotive, Vutex, Toyoda Gosei, and Toyotetsu Texas.
