Yes you've got to have a bit of slavery to keep things going. In Bizarro World.

Life is what you make it.

The punishment they are referring to is for those incarcerated in state and federal prisons regardless of race.

*FACT : "1.2 million people in its state and federal prisons, and incarcerated workers produce more than $2 billion in goods and commodities annually. According to those findings, incarcerated people earn an average of 13 to 52 cents per hour. Some states, like Alabama and Arkansas, do not pay incarcerated workers at all.

* Souce: ACLU

This was actually on 5 state Ballots in 2022. Whether to abolish it or not.

Let your life be driven with purpose!

Last year, in an insightful story by the New Jersey Monitor’s Dana Diflippo readers learned of the plight of New Jersey inmates were getting paid a dollar or two a day at their prison jobs even as the “Department of Corrections, consequently, hiked prices in prison commissaries, the only place incarcerated people can buy basic necessities and food.”
