The inmates that fight fires should get paid better and allowed to fight fires when they get out. Just seems kinda logically if that's what they've been doing while they were in prison. It's not like there's a huge over abundance of firefighters everywhere. Most places could use more fire fighters and less fires. And while we're at it, maybe they could get paid better than 1 dollar and hour plus 2 dollars for the day? Yes they're prisoners, but they already spend most of their time in prison. That's shitty as it is. They should have the opportunity to buy more cigarettes, shitty snacks, or send some money back home. They're risking their lives. At least give them that much.

Inmates are begging for a chance to get out. This gives them time out of jail, recreation, job skills, and role models. They get paid in money and all of that. Fighting for a community is great rehabilitation. It’s voluntary and they get so much. I know people in prison and they wish for some opportunity like this or to plant their own healthy food in a garden. Outrage culture needs to stop - we need real public discourse. And yeah, I also believe they should be able to apply for a license if they complete some time in a job like this.

Part of the reason the recidivism rate in the US is so high, is because of the limited opportunities ex cons have once they get out. In other words... People who havent committed crimes, and are in positions of power are directly and indirectly part of the problem we have with crime and career criminals.
It raises weird feelings and discussion points.. but true.
Like seriously, the statistics are scary. Within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
Its no wonder why the US is home to about 25% of the world's prison population, while only containing about 5% of the world's human population.

what exactly is wrong with prisoners who are CRIMINALS doing slave labor. They're criminals. They don't deserve anything. Why let them sit around doing nothing sucking up tax money in a cell when they could be a benefit to society? Are liberals trying to paint prisoners as an oppressed minority? Like how they do illegal immigrants?

Considering the ability to find a job and re-enter society following prison time, research shows that there is a large stigma surrounding those with criminal histories; schools and companies are far less likely to accept people with criminal histories than those who, for example, have no job experience or who have been unemployed for a long period of time. California's prison system is actually a good example of a system taking measures to combat this, with prison education systems unlike anywhere else in the US, connecting inmates to its state universities to take classes. I am not aware if EMT license training is a part of that system, but if it isn't, it should be, and likely will be soon. All in all, rehabilitation of prisoners is very important from the personal and the economical standpoint, research shows that every dollar invested in prison education systems creates a four-dollar return on investment in contribution to GDP.

Inmates should be able to put the jobs they performed in prison in their resume and have it count towards their job seeking. The programs themselves are a useful and productive use of their time while they're in prison, and allows them to be productive members of society.
fueledbyspite - Vor 3 Tage
Depends on the crime. You can't have people convicted of sexual impropriety can't be trusted with vulnerable people. I think convicted felons should be allowed to vote only after they have paid their debt to society. Low pay for prison workers... They're fed and sheltered at someone else's expense. Maybe instead of $0.20/hr they should be allowed to work time off the sentence?

On the topic of working prison inmates. There is a problem when inmates are released from prison and they can not find employment because they were incarcerated. I am a criminal justice major and i know that most inmates serving sentences are there due to non violent offenses. In some states there are government funded policies that promote business to hire recently released inmates. I personally believe in second chances mostly because there is a mixed expectations. The government wants released inmates to find jobs that are honest paying jobs but society does not want to hire them. I get that there is the mind set that all criminals are bad but regardless of what crime they have done they paid for there crimes they served time and unless they were convicted of a violent crime they should all be hired by business. When they don’t find jobs they turn to a life of crime and many returning offenders will say that they tried to find employment but they could not. Again I believe that they should be given second changes that way they don’t reoffend this not using tax payer money on inmates and using it for education or roads.

People like to throw around slave labor as if it's inherently a bad thing due to the bad past it's had. But if we have people that have taken away from others in our society by committing crimes, and are being paid to live by the people that they have hurt(victims and taxpayers), I see no reason why they shouldn't work, just because they're in prison doesn't mean they should get a free ride. Especially those that have committed crimes bad enough to receive life in prison, how does it make any sense to just keep a person locked in a box for the rest of their life and not let them do anything or do anything with them? If we're going to take away their life with prison, why not give them the option to either be executed or get a job in the prison and try to pay a little back for all that they've taken? It makes no sense other than to fund a corrupt system.

I don’t see a problem with inmate firefighters... In fact, it seems like a coveted position and might encourage some people to behave better so they can get the job. However, I wish there was a way to enable them to get a firefighting position upon leaving prison. If they have a history of good behavior, it would be nice if that was included in the background check instead of a simple checkbox asking if someone has a felony.

I have no complaints about prisoners working, because it's been shown that, despite the poor pay, it lowers repeat offense rates by giving them some sort of skill. I would also imagine it is a lot less boring than sitting in a cell all day, even if the work isn't fun, it is something, and if they want to do it (also encourages making choices and free thought), and it benefits the prison or society in general, it's a win-win.

I think at this point, companies aren't unaware of the power of "online influencers", and are just abusing the fact that they'll take less pay for the same work when compared to more traditional means. If a Kardashian wants to charge millions, and a person like this James character would do the same job but for tens of thousands, they are of course gonna keep going with the thousands, and offer that to other, comparable online personalities, because of their collaborations previously. I can imagine that also playing into people who are new to sponsorships getting offered a rate and assuming something that low is just the norm.

prisoner workers: they do need to work, get experience and "normalization", but the system needs fixing, and no one is interested in fixing any of it, only cutting funding. truly irresponsible.
Trump: ohh what a surprise, he is denying any fault with anything, providing no proof, and then blaming democrats for all the problems in the world. typical.
alex - Vor 5 Tage
How about the fact that there is no proof that she didn't give consent, and how he was wasted to a point where he was throwing up. For all we know, she only became unconscious while he was fingering her, and he didn't realize that she was too drunk because he was wasted out of his mind. And him being convicted doesn't really prove that he was actually at fault, all it says is that the jury thought that it was more likely that he was guilty than not guilty.
Wernend - Vor 5 Tage
I think the prison system has a lot of flaws, but letting inmates work (albeit at a severely reduced pay rate) is alright. You're letting them have purpose, letting them gain experience, and even earning a bit of extra cash. What angers me is exactly what you said with the EMT board; most inmates, regardless of their crime(s), do not get a second chance on the outside. Yeah, some people with their crimes are a "hazard" at best, but most people just made a mistake, or want that second chance and are automatically ruled out for that little box on the application. Here you have fine volunteers who are approved of by the state to provide a critical service, and now have ACTUAL EXPERIENCE, being thrown out because they were inmates. That part, right there is what's wrong..

I feel like we could give special recommendations for the inmates fighting the fires if/when they apply to be firefighters when they get out. they obviously would take some competence tests etc. but given the fact that they already have experience in firefighting, and they have served their time, it would only seem fair.

On the inmates, it's a great way to contribute. These inmates are putting their lives on the line to legitimately contribute to society. As for whether or not this should lead to a job opportunity when they get out, why not? It's skilled labor, they're physically fit, and are more importantly, experienced. Considering they're picking very specific inmates with rigorous conditions, I believe this could be an opportunity to really help reform some who are legitimately working for it. It's not like they're being allowed to enter law enforcement. They're entering a field where they can use their skilled labor to actual good use as EMTs and Fire Fighters. I have no issue with this.

I think those inmates are doing a great service by helping fight the fires. Their lives are on the line. No matter what they've done before (since the worst offenders aren't being included), it doesn't take away from the good work they are doing right now.
I had no clue inmates had jobs they were paid next to nothing for. That sounds way too much like slavery to me. Why can't they get paid fairly for the work they did after they've served their sentence? It might give them a headstart that'll help them keep clean from then on.
I'm sure some will be returning to jail anyway, but that's already a reality. This might reduce the return rate. It's worth testing, at least.

I have a lot of thoughts re: prisoners as firefighters. First off, I think it's a great program - these are convicted felons, it's voluntary, they have to go through training, they make a wage, AND let's be real: if the other firefighters have their hands full, and they bring in reinforcements - are the people complaining about "slave labour" going to be the ones to volunteer? HELL NO. BUT: if they do this program and are released, they should be immediately offered by the state to begin EMT training and get offered a position as a firefighter. It only makes sense if they've served their state/country and risked their lives to save other people, that they are offered this.

In fact go watch AIU's videos on it as he looks at the evidence and reports in detail and anyone with a single ounce of intelligence rather than a mission would understand he did not rape anyone.

Wow. The Sinclair story is a such a fucking victory, and it gives me some faith in both the private and the public sector doing what is actually right for once. THE GUY IN THE FCC WHO DIDN'T LIKE NET NEUTRALITY HAD DOUBTS, FOR CHRISSAKES. There were proper investigations made, and Tribune, who had probably spent a lot of time and money working on this merger, are suing them for lying through their teeth about their shitty business practices, which would then become THEIR problem when the businesses merged. Whether it's noble or selfish, they're still not opening the airlock to a company acting like a virus, spreading its influence further than what is allowed.
Honestly, the current form that corporatism has been taking terrifies me, in that a lot of the anti-monopoly laws that I learned about in school I worry are being slowly broken down. The political cartoon of the octopus representing Standard Oil (and Rockefeller, from 100+ years ago) comes to mind whenever I see a company's wriggling tendrils wrapping their way around everything. I get nervous, whether it's the local college buying everthing and changing the cityscape, or Disney toys being made by Hasbro now instead of Mattel (because Disney now owns Marvel, and Star Wars, and Hasbro made those toys, but this still makes the toy market less diverse), or shady, ideological broadcasting companies vying to take over access to more of our EYES.
It's scary as hell that our President, the leader of our "free country," is in support of scary, tentacled, corporation-viruses like Sinclair, but it makes sense - because HE'S GROWN HIS OWN SCARY, TENTACLED, CORPORATION-VIRUS.
I hate everything, but because this deal didn't go down on so many levels - the fact that for once, the fortifications of some sense of dignity and justice prevailed against an attack - I have some more hope we can fight back. That the better in us can fight against worse impulses. That for once, something morally and legally wrong and shitty, is prevented from happening because it's immoral, illegal, and shitty. AUGH.
