This probably sounds obvious, but I learned today that prisoners aren’t protected by OSHA regulations, and that this is another reason why employers are so eager to utilize this modern slavery. It’s only a couple cents an hour, less transportation costs than the overseas sweatshops, and if you want people to work with hazardous materials without proper training? That’s fine too! Prison labor is the ultimate free market solution!
“We can’t fight this year’s round of global warming-induced wildfires because the prison
slavelaborers we would normally sacrifice to fight the fires have instead succumbed to the plague”. Is 2020 even real?
Say slave labor with your whole chest please.
