There is even a tax credit for employers who hire someone out of work for a period of time, but if they hire a sex offender, they are excluded from the credit. This is counter productive to the cause, ironically. There are statistics and scholarly papers online from the governments own websites corroborating this phenomenon, are they tone deaf, is it a semantics game or is it the popular vote in politics?
