Bakery Offers Employment to at Risk Adults

You know that Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream you love oh so much? Well, those delicious brownie chunks were most likely baked by someone once deemed "unemployable."

Greyston Bakery, the brownie artisans behind Ben & Jerrys and Whole Foods, is changing the world through their open employment policy.

This New York based bakery offers employment to anyone who wants to work, all they have do is sign up and wait for an opening. This allows people who would have before been deemed unemployable to turn their life around and make an honest living.

This do-good bakery must be doing right...For 30 years they've made it into the homes and hearts of millions, proving that sometimes all you need is a second chance.

Watch Greyston CEO Mike Brady explain his business model and why it works:

You want a brownie now, don't you?
