API senior fellow J. Pepper Bryars recently discussed prison construction, occupational licensing and the impact of dad-deprived homes during an appearance on Politics & Moore, airing on WVNN 92.5 FM in Huntsville.
Bryars talked about his recent oped on the need to build three major prisons in Alabama, all without taxpayer dollars. He also mentioned the rise in occupations requiring special licenses in Alabama, now accounting for more than 20% of the state’s workforce.
But more importantly, Bryars noted how nearly half of all babies born in Alabama are to unmarried mothers.
“This is a crisis,” he said, adding that dad-deprived homes are at the epicenter of all major problems facing our society.
