Corporate Slavery in America

Prison State America: Inmates Becoming Corporate Slaves In For-profit Facilities

by RT

Inmates work eight hours per day for major corporations such as Chevron, Motorola, Nordstrom’s and Target, yet only have the possibility of making up $1.25 an hour.

In addition, companies that provide services like phone calls overcharge prisoners on even the most basic services, making hundreds of millions in profits annually.

For-profit prisons have created a “neo-slavery” in the US, according to award-winning journalist Chris Hedges.
