So then there’s this…

Just as mass incarceration has burdened American taxpayers in major prison states, so is the use of inmate labor contributing to lost jobs, unemployment and decreased wages among workers — while corporate profits soar.

The use of forced labor in prisons took off in the early 1990s. Funny that. So did our incarceration rate:

Our prison industrial complex is nothing but corporate slave labor. Not saying people are purposefully being locked up to be a captive labor force for corporations, but with a largely privatized prison system, plus corporate contracts for labor going to said prisons, it’s an awfully interesting correlation, no?
