Corrections Corp. of America has partnered with Arizona officials to recruit 'mature' workers for two of its prison management contracts.
Many corrections workers get hired in their 20s and 30s and it can be their first job, Grant said.

"They generally are more calm because they've faced challenges before," Grant said.
