Subject: Check out PRIVATIZING HELL!...Prisons, Profits & Politics
Creator of this website certainly knows her stuff! When you have the time, check out all the information. Well worth the time to read.
From the information I've gained, in several Maryland State Prisons, the work prisoners do is making furniture. In my opinion, each prisoner physically capable of working should do so, however.....with better wages. If these companies didn't do business with prisons, they would have to go to third world countries for employees in order to profit their millions of dollars every year.
Anyone thinking keeping prisoners in prison is only about getting criminals off the streets, needs a wake up call for sure. IT'S HUGE BUSINESS.
