Comparing prison wages to that of a person who didnt break the law is a bit off. If they want the higher wage then dont break the law.

Right. It's just a justification for slave labor.
That's what i got from it.....
And yet it doesnt meet the definition of slave labor as they are compensated.
Notice it doesnt apply as punishment to crimes committed...

Slave Labor = think Nazi Holocaust..
The federal system does not use chain gangs.
There is no slave labor and you have failed to support your failed argument that there is.
The Thirteenth Amendment forbade slavery and involuntary servitude, “except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.”
