Corporations Profiting From The Prison Industrial Complex
As the United States continues to lead the world in the percentage of its population that it incarcerates, there are dozens of companies that profit from the mass incarceration epidemic. Inmates provide companies with cheap, easy to control labor without them being required to provide workers with health insurance or sick days. Corporations who use prison labor also do not have to worry about having to consider family or vacation time for employees. Corporations also get away with paying inmates between 90 cents and $4 a day.
