This is not turning prisons into rehabilitation centers, it's the new Chinese slave labour market, in North America!
Not a good idea at all, an incentive to keep jails full.
If you put more and more people in prison, you have more and more cheap labour and they (prisoners) want to do it simply because it's less boring
than sitting in a jail cell.
These prisons are usually private, for profit prisons too, they lobby politicians, to increase sentence time, be stingy with parole, to enact or
preserve stupid laws (ie: keeping marijuana illegal) to keep the jails full.
So before you go on thinking this is a swell idea, think about where this is going, America with the worlds largest prison population already, set to
grow due to capitalism.
The good news is, THE JOBS WILL COME BACK! The bad news is they will be done by an army of prison slaves instead of Chinese sweatshop labourers.
So, if you want a job in the future and a roof over your head, go rob a bank and get caught, or grow some plants.
No good can come of this.
