“Just get a job,” the prison guards told Corey Prince.

And he had a plan to get one. 

He has a diverse background that includes going to private schools, college, and prison. When he got out, he worked hard to find a job. But found it difficult to land one. At one point, he worked with a prison re-entry program and landed a job with a company only to be told that they only hired felons in the warehouse and not the office.
