Paul Johnson Drywall, Phoenix, AZ


Challenge: The managers at Paul Johnson Drywall needed to find a steady work crew to assist in commercial construction projects with finishing interior walls for new and remodeling projects.

Solution: The Labor Partnership team was able to find qualified inmate workers to supplement their civilian work crews. This successful partnership began in 2019 and, prior to the Covid crisis, employed 14 inmates each day (on average) from the ASP Phoenix West prison complex to supplement their work crew at their Phoenix, AZ facility. Though no inmates are currently available to travel outside the prison, they hope to be able to provide job skills training to inmate work crews again after the pandemic.
