Former inmate launches plumbing career with skills learned while incarcerated

The Inmate/Ward Labor Program (IWL), in partnership with the local unions and CDCR stakeholders, has been providing inmates training through the pre-apprenticeship program and with on-the-job experience on various construction projects. This joint effort continues to provide former CDCR inmates the job skills that lead to potential career opportunities upon release. One such success story is former inmate Johnny Bosquez, who is now earning over $30 per hour as a plumber.
