How Modernized Slave Labor Is Being Harnessed In America

6

The two largest for-profit prison companies in the United States – GEO and Corrections Corporation of America – and their associates, have directed more than $10 million to candidates since 1989 and have spent nearly $25 million on lobbying efforts. From 2000 to 2010, the two companies, along with Cornell Companies, contributed $835,514 to federal candidates, including senators and members of the House of Representatives.

Why are private prison companies establishing influential connections with policymakers? To attain three nefarious goals: pitching private prisons as a lower cost alternative to building or maintaining state facilities; fighting policies that might reduce the use of incarceration; and enjoying the fruits of a cheap and readily available work force. There are now about 130 private prisons in the country, with roughly 157,000 beds. According to a report by the Justice Policy Institute, in 2010 alone, GEO and CCA saw combined revenue of over $2.9 billion. Need we say more?

Are companies making money by imprisoning their fellow Americans? Yes. Unicor, McDonald’s, Walmart, AT&T, Chevron, and IBM are just the names of a few companies that support the use of prison labor, and all simply because they want people to remain in prison for their free modernized slave labor.

  1. Let’s stop this. Please we need to stop the CEO’s expose them. We need to put an end to this. I’m all for ending the inhumane ways our world has come to. We need to shut this down!

    • No, North America is a continent. The United States has two names. Call it what you want, and think what you want. I can’t stop you. Even if I can, I won’t. Free speech.

  2. I am really, really surprised that we aren’t all flat out rioting EVERYWHERE. Against EVERYTHING. I can’t see a reason why the average citizen wouldn’t.

  3. I dont see a issue with this our prison system is too easy on criminals. Cable TV soft beds better food than a lot of people eat. Should go back to a bucket in the corner for the bathroom a pile of straw for a bed just the basic nutrients needed to survive in a terrible tasting mush and no internet or TV. Then maybe the crime rate would go down. Either that or Capital punishment for murder rape and child molesters and chopping the hands off thieves.
