Private Corporations are using Slave Labor in America and I'm not talking about illegals!
With an unemployment rate of 9.1% officially and who knows how much in reality everyone seems to be looking at how to improve the job market. Moreover, all we ever hear about is that we as Americans cannot compete globally because of our standard of living and high wages. Yes, our wages are high when compared to slave labor in China or child labor in India but what if I told you that our real competitor is right here in America. Right here in America we have over 2 million people who receive no more than a DOLLAR or two a day for as much as 12 hours of work and they are not illegal immigrants!

No, you say..where is that happening in America?

IN OUR PRISONS!...

No shit sherlock. Look at the 13th amendment. It says specifically:

"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."

I wish this website had a sage button...

That doesn't mean that private corporations should be able to benefit! The PUBLIC pays for these prisons, the public should benefit!

Do research into who owns the prisons you will be surprised.
Most are privately owned.
I researched this in the late 90's at the time it cost $38,000 a year to house one inmate.
