  •  Prison Industries Inc. needs payroll restructuring (7+ / 0-)

    In general, i agree with prison work programs. They give inmates an introduction to self worth and work ethic they may have missed. It also occupies their time with something other than gang society.  It's the compensation scheme that needs a rework.

    Pay inmates prevailing rate for whatever it is they work at.

    Give them a pay stub that reflects ALL normal deductions.

    Hold 80% of net or actual cost, to tax payers, of their incarceration.

    Charge the corpys who are exploiting this labor force full price for the work done.

    The prisoners get even more real world reinforcement, not to mention a paper trail to recoup their losses if they were wrongfully jailed. And the so called "civil-minded" corpy gets his exploitative "invisible hand" chopped off.
