Forty three individuals last year found a second chance at work here at Good Soil Industries. Whether it is a visible tattoo, a criminal past, a long battle with addiction, or a gap in their work history, Good Soil provides an a place for dignity to be restored through work. As many can attest, it is easier to find a job when you have a job. We give a foot in the door for individuals who continually find themselves shut out.
But Good Soil is not just work; it is relationships. And on this day there are 18 new employees excited to complete an I-9 and W4 for the first time in years. They are eager to show that they are ready and worthy of work.
They are a reminder to me to always be grateful for the work I have, and I hope it does the same for you today.
