John Oliver explains how prisoners make and spend money, and how companies can profit at the expense of their families.

  • Idk that sounds pretty illegal. Cutting off all personal contact with their families

  • Well the actuall problem here is that America is a 100% capitalist country where only money rules. if it's good for business it will continue like this and not stopp, ever. These horrible prisons in the USA treat humans like animals and are profiting from it. In Europe we have mixed systems with socialist and capitalist traits, and you can definitely tell the difference when looking at the prisons as well as social wellfare systems in these countries. But the USA will never have a system like that cause they are just too afraid of communism.

  • I don't dispute some of the shadier aspects of this report, but are we meant to sympathize with criminals? They could see their children every day and help pay household bills if they hadn't chosen to break the law. Being in prison should be uncomfortable and a deterrent from returning. I'm sure the families of the people they murdered, or the people they raped, kidnapped or stole from really hope to see their attackers living well in prison.

    • @Gavin I can only speak from my experience, and that is of someone who grew up in a very poor single parent situation living in terrible parts of town. I had many, many opportunities to take the easy route and profit from illegal activities, but I chose to work hard at school, seek post secondary education, which I paid for myself, and now hold a lucrative career. I had to struggle for everything I've ever achieved and because of my experience I have little sympathy for those who choose crime. I don't think I'm unique at all and I feel everyone can do what I did if they work hard, and due to that I firmly believe we should be very hard on criminals. In saying that, I also don't believe my opinion is the end all be all, and I believe neither is yours, but it is important to have voices from both sides of the coin to temper one another.

    • @EP the situation you described is incredibly rare in the advent of private prisons, and I’m not saying “take no personal responsibility” but the way we treat prisoners is excessively cruel and does nothing to make them better people who are capable of escaping poverty

      GavinGavin20 日 前
    • @Gavin Isn't it convenient that so many supposed root causes to sociological issues discount personal responsibility. I guess everyone that made a great life for themselves who originally came from broken homes or grew up in poverty must be superhuman if it's so incredibly hard to do! I wonder why they didn't end up breaking the law if it's not their choice to go down a life of crime. The answer is much more complex than any sweeping statement, but let's not become complacent and give those choosing to actively degrade society a free pass because they don't have a choice, they absolutely do and being in prison is the repercussions of said choice.

  • It's your lack of legal education to not know the answer to this.. It's also your personal prejudice... In fact, your personal prejudice is one of the main causes prisoners are forced to undue slavery.. Your support for Roe v. Wade to be specific. And see..look at your instant response. Before you even listen to any points, you are already biased and refuse to listen to learn how to correct anything wrong. Amendment XIV Section 4. Before emancipation is slavery ipso facto. A claim on the loss or emancipation of a slave is a continued condition of undue slavery ipso facto. A Constitutional prohibition on defining "person" based on biological characteristics as that was the doctrine of the Superior Race and it was a Resolution of Civil War to have the equal rights of emancipation to the rights of "people". Section 1981 equal rights including white people as "white citizens" have rights that non-emancipated "white people" do not. A preservation of the doctrine of the superior race as "white citizens" not "white people". Rights of "people", as in emancipation to the rights of people, may be suspended in due conviction of a crime. A prisoner has the right of speech, the press, religion, but does not have the right to peaceably assemble..As if it wasn't common sense enough that someone held against their will cannot peaceably assemble.. it's the only right enumerated as rights of "people" in the First Amendment. Rights without enumeration under "people" are universal human rights. Slavery without due conviction is under the commerce clause. The "accused" is the real property of another in..they are really property of a different estate than the state, namely their own and no one else's. And there's no state that would ever question not taxing the real property of another state. Do the math. Common sense.

  • "Crime shouldn't pay" is such a dumb argument against minimum wage for prisoners. Crime "paying" would imply that by committing the crime you gained something EXTRA. The prisoners would not be making any more money than any minimum wage employee outside of prison, and so would be gaining nothing extra, thus "crime doesn't pay" still applies.

  • There is way too much if it in the US of putting people in Jail for BS/petty reasons to give the state/private jails paying the state slave labour to raise $$. Pretty clear the system is broken when the US has the biggest incarcerated population per capita in the world. For this, either pay the works min wage or eliminate the costs for things like calls with family, hygeine products and such. Especially messed that people in prison that try to work so they appeal if wrongly convicted can't raise the $$ to do so or if they are only in Jail for unpaid debt/bills they could raise the $$ to pay it off. Any $$ prison systems make off things like calls should go directly to rehab programs to reduce repeat offenders, not tasers. Frick.

  • "You cant build a family in prison," - literally the point of prison is that you are removed from society and your family due to criminal actions that you have taken or damage/pain you have caused others. Lets not forget the victims of crime, here, who are often left entirely out of the equation and walk alway feeling victimized again by the system, particularly in Canada. Imprisonment is not supposed to be a positive, fulfilling, experience where law abiding taxpayers pay for your meals and care, while you spend the whole day doing nothing. Labour should be mandatory. But also, prisoners should work for minimal earnings in areas that benefit society such as building public infrastructures, while gaining the knowledge that allows them to work in related fields once they get out and systems should be set in place to facilitate that for them instead of making them ineligible to earn honest pay. Thats a nobrainer. But again, prison should not be daycare. In canada, it is and that is a real shame. Prison systems should focus on rehabilitating perpetrators of non-violent crimes and keeping society safe from perpetrators of violent crimes indefinitely.

  • Slavery re-invented, it's so widespread, they just say they committed a crime when they didn't commit a crime or commited a crime like being poor and not being able to pay a fine, etc. The court is controlled by the police that need and depend on cheap labor. Human trafficking is going on to replenish the cheap labor when needed, but how? In what ways can you think rounding people for a crime to do cheap in prison labor? Do pharmaceutical companies do drug trials in prison? How do police cover up their re-invention of slavery? Is the civil war being undone?

  • Not paying prisoners the correct wage for work and then selling them things at great markups is a pretty shitty thing to do. If you pay them correctly you can tax them more, and then give them voting rights because some day they will get out and have a vested interest in what that world well be. Plus their work could be unfair competition for actual companies. Private companies should not be involved.

  • As much as I want to feel bad, I cant. If you go to prison, thats on you, if they're upset about their position, they have no one to blame but themselves. Had multiple uncles who worked in prison and didn't bitch about it when they got out, they got real jobs and had real money. Again if you've ended up in prison its your fault, dont care if its drugs or whatever, and to anyone who wants to argue their mostly non violent drug users, idk if you knew but drugs impact more than the user. My one uncle was robbing houses for drug money. While my other one committed involuntary manslaughter via crashing while on cocaine, both consitered non violent, but still impacted others in ways that can't be forgiven, they should've been punished and were. I remember having to clean the house or do certain things on punishment as a kid. I see no difference in that and being forced to work as a criminal, you're in prison, you're not a free man, serve your punishment and then get back to work.

None of this makes any sense. Not to mention most of the inmates should not even be in prison, the only reason they are is to make money for other people............this upsets me so much

  • Ideally, manufacturing operations that could carry on without dangerous tools or products could be established in jails, hire inmates at minimum wages while allowing them to learn new skills. On the other hand, part of their salaries would go towards their own upkeeping (small rent, food, clothing). As a motivational tool, prisoners could receive low-level promotions, such as team leader, supervisor, etc. and receive a corresponding pay raise, just like a job on the outside. If well calculated, the prisoners being helped with managing their income, follow a budget, etc., would be able to maintain themselves, help reduce prison costs and leatrn something about what real life is like. That is if the government really wants to reabilitate people and not just punish them.
