I think the inmates should make fare wages to pay for the amount it cost for their imprisonment, that way it does not cost the tax payers and it will also not pay the people in charge of prisons, or the prisons should take the profit made from people sending money to inmates from companies like Jpay to pay for the inmates - or why is there not a non-profit organization helping people send money to inmates that does not cost them $20 for every $50 they send? None of this makes any sense. Not to mention most of the inmates should not even be in prison, the only reason they are is to make money for other people............this upsets me so much

I never had anyone sending me money so I mostly would go without or luckily im a likeable person that had others helping me at least get by. and all this was just waiting for court which I wasn't sentenced to any prison time, was released after court so in other word all that time was for nothing and to top it off the time spent didnt even go towards my fines

Ideally, manufacturing operations that could carry on without dangerous tools or products could be established in jails, hire inmates at minimum wages while allowing them to learn new skills. On the other hand, part of their salaries would go towards their own upkeeping (small rent, food, clothing). As a motivational tool, prisoners could receive low-level promotions, such as team leader, supervisor, etc. and receive a corresponding pay raise, just like a job on the outside. If well calculated, the prisoners being helped with managing their income, follow a budget, etc., would be able to maintain themselves, help reduce prison costs and leatrn something about what real life is like. That is if the government really wants to reabilitate people and not just punish them.

Governor Gavin Nunes signs into law a bill in California which will allow "prison firefighters" to join a career in firefighting once they are released. So good on this show in drawing attention to this issue and bring change. Modern slavery still exists in the prison system but training during incarceration leading into positive career outlook once released. Small changes over time leads to evolution.

17:00 There actually are people who this is good for besides the private companies. The main purpose of prison labor is to offload the cost of incarceration onto the incarcerated. So state governments benefit because they can imprison more people for less money using prison labor. Imprisoning more people leads to more demand for prison staff. So those people also benefit. www.prisonpolicy.org/reports/pie2020.html

As an ex con, not in America, I have a few issues. The money you earn goes into what you will have when you get out to start your life again. It needs to be reasonable, say, cover a month, before the social services kick in. Then you have the boredom. It is good to work. Do you really want to sit in you cell all day. No. I am not saying that the numbers are perfect here, but these numbers are galaxies away from this story. Actually, around 20 units of currency per day, average. And, of course, all necessities inside must be free and available, since you are not in a position to go shopping.

3:08 There's a bit of an issue, there, though, because I asked two of my law professors (one of whom is a currently sitting judge) about it, specifically if removing that language would make community service as punishment for a crime unconstitutional, and both said yes because it technically qualifies as "slavery" under the Thirteenth Amendment. That would mean more people going to jail for minor offenses that they have no business seeing the inside of a cell over. We need a more effective way of ending prison slave labor than just taking out that line. Maybe an additional amendment requiring that prisons pay inmate laborers at least the minimum wage, minus the allowable deduction for room and board (which is way less than you might assume and nowhere near enough to completely take their wages away, under that system) or, even better, that they must follow all labor laws applicable to the county or city in which the prison or jail is located, which would include the above, plus OSHA standards, etc. Simply amending that single phrase out of existence would overburden our prison system and unfairly punish minor offenders who could otherwise just work off their sentences picking up garbage or cleaning park bathrooms. EDIT: Oh, I already said this a year or more ago. Deleted the older comment because it was based on instinct, rather than confirmation by legal experts, didn't go into detail, and didn't offer a potential solution.

I finally realized what I hated about what those century old fermented prunes were saying. "crime doesn't pay". you are either insinuating that when someone messes up once, they should never get another chance ever, or that what they are trying to be paid for doing in there is crime, in which case the prison should be shut down. im a 14 year old and I have more basic logic than those dinosaurs.

Even at that logic, it's still expected that anywhere from 40,000 to 230,000 behind bars (~2 to 10%) of the prison population are wrongfully imprisoned. Those people are potentially introduced to this form of slavery at no fault of their own with a system reluctant to help solve their mistakes in order to continue to have virtually free labor. Honestly I'd say the system is entirely dependent on with how horrible the prison system is with reentry. Small offenders who cant afford a good lawyer spend a few years behind bars, reenter society with increased debts/significantly harder time finding employment/possibly no support system coming out, the whole system is designed to take low level offenders, use their labor for a year or two, release them until they come back for even longer, and continue the cycle

First, I don't think prisons should be privatized, ever. There should not be anyone profiting from prisons. That said, whether prisoners should be paid more or less will then depend on the net cost or profit to the government overall. When doing this calculation though, it is important to take into consideration all the factors. For example, while paying the guards/administration is a cost, the income tax they then file should be considered a profit. And whereas internal job should not be considered to generate a profit(as it merely offset the cost of hiring workers), anything that does garner a profit, be it a good such as license plate or service such as fire fighting(the money saved compared to paying normal fire fighter) should be considered a profit. After doing this calculation, if it is found that the government is profiting, then certainly, increase the pay. However, if it doesn't, then no, don't increase pay, at least not in money. So what to do if not to increase pay in money? Pay in time served, so that those who work more/harder spend less time in jail. I believe that shorter, but "harsher" punishment would be better. It will save money from a societal stand point while exerting the same overall extend of punishment. It also provide a reachable goal for most prisoners, giving them proper motivation. As for people who are serving life (or rather multiple life, as single life tend to get reduced to finite terms eventually), do use them like slave labors(but not treated as slave, as in no aribtary punishment because you feel like it. That benefits no one. Just whatever is sufficient to force them to work is enough). If they are in that boat, they probably deserve it. And unlike death penalty, in this case if their case is actually overturned(be it innocence or technicality), there is actual appropriate restitution--money.

John you failed to bring up the cost of incarcerating prisoners; if they were on the outside, and not stealing or doing what ever got them in prison, they'd have to earn a living to pay for home and food. In this case the home is jail, along with the jailers, food and staff to maintain the jailhouse. After that "common sense" would say you can pay them a wage less those expenses. By the way did you listen to the prisoner firefighter? "Now being able to give back and potentially save lives in huge"... Giving back for what they had taken from society, if you are earning a living wage you've given nothing back, even she recognizes that. Interns work for low or no wages to gain experience and many states are not as crazy as California so bad example. Having contact with the outside I agree needs to happen and with cheap internet and most people having phones this could be done. Slavery? I think not... giving back or paying for your stay is reasonable.

The state shouldn't be allowed to kidnap, imprison, and murder people and then demand that their victims or their families pay for the privilege. And you say that as though most prisoners are murderers and rapists, when in reality most are in for minor crimes, especially in states like California with mandatory minimums and three strikes laws. How are you embarrassed to tell the world that you're a submissive bootlicker who uncritically supports state violence?
