TECH CRUNCH - Oct 30 - Y Combinator-backed employment platform "70 Million Jobs" is launching a new social network geared toward helping formerly incarcerated individuals connect with each other. While 70 Million Jobs focuses on helping people with criminal records find jobs, Commissary Club wants to serve as a place for folks to find community. Through Commissary Club, folks can explore education courses, and find mentors, jobs and housing. The unemployment rate for formerly incarcerated people, as of 2018, is 27%, according to Prison Policy. As a result of the pandemic, however, that percentage is likely much higher. To date, parent company 70 Million Jobs has raised $1.6M from investors and is seeking an additional $2M in funding.
