Colorado's Slave Labor
In an attempt to reduce reliance on immigrant workers, Colorado has found a cheaper substitute: prison inmates. The Colorado Department of Corrections is paying farmers $9.60 an hour for female inmates to work on their farms. Immigrant laborers had charged $3.00 less per hour. The inmates are paid $.60 per hour. The name for this, in my view, is slave labor. As I wrote here, the inmates shouldn't stand for this and neither should we.
