@kropot Because it's a crime to make prisoners a little more self sustaining?
Inmate average cost: $31,000 (goes up to $60,000 per inmate in some states)
Now on top of that let's hire thousands of people costing another $31,000 each to do the "chores" that these inmates are doing.
If the prisons were selling merchandise made by the inmates to the public, that would be a different story but as far as I know, there's no "production" aside from inmate "programs" like the firefighter one in cali
