Pay Imprisoned People a Minimum Wage. End Legalized Slavery

Across the country, imprisoned people earn as little as $0.09 an hour for mandated labor. In some states, like Texas, Georgia, and Arkansas, it's legal to not pay them anything.

It is hard to believe how we treat people. And how much do the prisons make from these prisoners??

When you give them a raise, if you are that stupid, please deduct for rom and boards and medical care.

Sorry, I can't agree...they have NO expenses, because taxpayers give them food, shelter, clothing, medical and even free college. Have we forgotten they're supposed to be being punished?? Perhaps if conditions were more harsh it would be a better deterrent than it currently is.

On second thoughts, we can give them minimum wage...then have them pay for their own food, clothing and other daily needs. That would be fair.
