    My students told me they got $9.75 an hour. After GEO took out room and board and other "charges, the offender/slave actually received $1.34 hourly. The money was deposited in their commissary fund and the offender had to buy items from the commissary that GEO owned. So............

    The industry building at the Lockhart facility was paid for by
    Texas taxpayers. Air conditioner components are manufactured there and the company  pays $1.00 a year for their lease.
