No seriously. What planet are you from? What world do you come from? I am going to assume you simply do not know better so allow me to explain....
For the most part, many Americans who have jobs do not need to learn to pay taxes. Taxes are taken out of the paycheck before it ever comes into the
hands to the person working for it. You do not learn to pay taxes, taxes are taken. There is no choice. The only real exceptions are people who work
in cash industries, self employed people, and people who bring in money through various means besides simply working a job.
In this world of drug test and background test to get a job, your average inmate can look forward to minimum wage and entry level jobs. They will
never need to learn to pay taxes. Their taxes will always be taken out before they get their paycheck. There will be no option and no choice no matter
what the talking heads on TV tell you about people "not paying their fair share".
Personally I find this story sad. My hats off to the guys who put their lives on the line in service to others, but it is sad that these inmates lives
are only worth $1 per hour according to the State. Especially when one considers the cost is roughly $47,000 per year to house an inmate in prison
($123 per day). This is slave labor at it's finest. Wouldn't it just make more sense to use non violent offenders and allow them to work for their
