The Real Prison IndustrySubmitted by joeneesima on Mon, 11/28/2011 - 17:58
Where there's a Union...there's corruption.
And which candidates are in the pockets of Unions...hmmm...
The theory behind PIC [Prison Industrial Complex] is that there are powerful forces — capitalist, racist, etc. — pushing to lock up as many black and brown men as they can to maintain white supremacy and line the pockets of big-prison CEOs and shareholders with profits earned not just from the taxpayer but from the toil of prison-slave labor.
Also contrary to left-wing expectations, these policies have been implemented not so much by the hard-hearted captains of industry and their Republican lackeys, but by a Democrat-controlled state legislature lubricated with donations from a powerful public-sector union.
