A new report from the ACLU details the systemic exploitation of U.S. prisoners, who are compelled to work without basic labor protections and little or no training while making close to nothing while producing “more than $2 billion per year in goods and more than $9 billion per year in services for the maintenance of the prisons…”
With Black Americans incarcerated in state prisons across the country at nearly five times the rate of whites, and Latinx people are 1.3 times as likely to be incarcerated than non-Latinx whites (The Color of Justice, The Sentencing Project).
This modern day chattel slavery produces more than $11 billion annually in goods and services.
