Prisoners across the US are on strike against forced labour | What's Left
Strike is to protest forced labour.
In what has been called the largest prison strike in US history, inmates are engaging in a massive protest strike against their forced labour. The US has more prisoners per capita than any country in the world except the Seychelles. Maintaining the prison population costs the US over $75B a year. Also, unlike most countries around the world, prisoners are forced into work and, in many states, the profits from this forced labour goes to the for-profit prisons.
