Prison Is A Racket. Every aspect is a different money making scheme. Prison Industries rakes in over a billion dollars in profits annually through coerced labour. Men get up before sunrise and work all day for literally pennies, many get nothing. You have to buy everything and all marked up 200 even 2000 percent. On some yards phone calls are charged the rate of a 900 number. There are countless towns and counties (e.g., Carson City, NV; Tattnall County, GA) that depend entirely on the proliferation of these facilities for their existence.
Nothing good can come from making an enterprise of incarceration.

34 UNITED: The coalition uniting people in all 34 state prisons, led by formerly incarcerated, people still incarcerated, and our families to challenge the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation’s (CDCR’s) forced merging of General Population (GP) and Sensitive Needs Yards (SNY). Those who refuse to merge because they fear violence are threatened with 115 disciplinary write-ups, loss of program access, and solitary confinement – all of which impact Parole eligibility and release.
