Each year an average of nearly 5,000 people are released from prison in Oregon. State regulations make it nearly impossible for many of them, and others with conviction records, to find good paying employment.

In Oregon, there are 100 mandatory restrictions on employment for people with felony convictions. People with controlled substance convictions are subject to 77 mandatory employment restrictions.

The employment category with the most restrictions in Oregon is Health Care, with 23 mandatory restrictions for any felony. Occupations restricted in that category include good-paying jobs like Mental Health Counselors, which has a median wage of $24.25 per hour.
