But  Milwaukee-based mattress retailer Hassless Mattress is trying out life without salespeople.         Using mattresses to break the cycle. Topeka, Kan.-based Memory Foam Liquidators is giving former inmates from the Shawnee County Jail and Topeka Correctional Facility a chance to earn a living again, even finding a way to give some of its new employees a ride to work. "They are just people like you and me, and you know it's ...
