I slightly, and I mean EVER so slightly, disagree with 2. I know its an unpopular opinion, but if theyre asking for minimum wage that turns prisons into a massive drain on resources. Granted, they’re being taken advantage of and it needs to change. I heard somewhere that some convicts get close to a 1 dollar an hour? Thats insane!
But minimum wage is a bit much. Prisons shouldn’t be a business, but they do need to at least break even. They need to pay for the building, guards, food, lodging, and so on. If you stack minimum wage on top of that, well I don’t see many prisons being able to provide for the prisoners needs adequately.
