In the US prison is a business

Postby fergus1234 » 05 Nov 2018, 11:42

Private prisons exists in the US and it is a billion dollar industry. It had been seen as a source of cheap labor without resorting to hiring people from China. Prisoners are said to be the next best cheap labor option aside from Chinese factory workers since that slave labor is their punishment for their crime.

Some people think private prisons is cruelty and human rights violations while others see this as a good business with great profits since your employees barely have salaries. What is your opinion of private prisons?

It's very good Business even without prisoners work. There will be always criminals, so means clients. Biggest problem are gang in prison, but it could be solved holding minimum security prison.

Business is okay.. But giving nothing or meagre wages to those prisoners is actually violation of human rights..

In India also the prisoners work but not for outsiders. thy either work in Government projects or they participate in manufacturing/production of products those can be produced in a workshop or small working place. I know prisoners prepare furniture, handicrafts and other products which are sold to people at Jail outlets and the prisoners are paid daily wages for that.

Wow this is a first, prison as a business? Now with the kind of prisoners who go there, isn't that hard to control anyone, knowing that they all have some kind of influence and can do anything so how do you control that.

The advantage of prisoners as employees, their labor is super cheap. They will never get late nor absent but yeah human rights is kind of violated.

the low security prisoners like marriage cheaters,drug pushers,scammers are the ones being used for labor not the serial killers and gangsters. They get the most well behaved ones.

They are in maximum security prisons. The non violent criminals are the ones used for slave labor. The jobs for them are :

Farmers
Kitchen cooks
factory workers
Seamstress


educated criminals are used as teachers, mechanics,telemarketers,customer service,data encoders reps etc...

I researched how much prisoners get paid.... Whoa 2 dollars a day is their salary!! Private Prisons is indeed a very profitable business because you can profit more because employees are paid less.

2 dollars because of expenses of keep them inside. Guards, food, security system. If you must paid them more, than prison would broke very fast.

That is a great business there but the prisoners should be given something bigger than meagre. They are doing so much work for nothing or for a small amount.
