An industrial engineering job in New York City could be replaced by a prison industrial security system in three years.
The city’s prison industrial complexes are plagued with problems.
They include dangerous equipment, inadequate training, and high levels of crime.
But prison labor is not a common practice in these facilities.
This story is based on an interview with two former inmates who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The interview was conducted at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New Haven, Connecticut, where the former inmates are currently serving time.
We are doing this job, I say, and we’re getting paid less than $1.25 an hour.
They are not doing anything illegal, but they are doing things that are not right, said one of the former inmate’s co-workers.
So they’re not doing the right thing, we tell them, but it’s their job.
The other former inmate said, You know, we were here to build bridges.
And I can’t say I’ve done the right things.
I don’t have a high enough standard of living to be able to buy a car or get on an airplane or get anywhere else, she said.
But the inmates are not the only ones struggling with this issue.
There are many inmates in prison in this country who have been incarcerated for crimes they did not commit.
They also face the possibility of a life behind bars.
They’re living the same lives as other prisoners, but there are many of them who are not getting the services they need.
One of the inmates who was interviewed by the Investigative Unit said she feels hopeless.
She can’t find work because she is not getting paid.
The woman said she has lost her job at a job she was trained to do.
She’s not getting enough money to live on.
I’m so tired of being locked up, she says.
I can barely pay the rent.
She says she was told that the prison would give her $50 per day to work.
But now she’s been told that she will have to work a minimum of four days a week for about $1,500 per month.
Inmates who are incarcerated at the prison industrial facilities say they are not working on time or on their assigned shifts.
Inmates say they feel frustrated by the lack of care and assistance they are receiving.
The former inmate told us that they were given no time to do their homework.
The other inmate said she was given no breaks at all.
In the interviews, the former prisoner and the former prison worker talked about their experiences as a part-time worker.
The interviews were conducted in May, the end of the first month of their incarceration.
The former inmate described a very dark atmosphere in the prison.
She said she saw guards standing in front of her cell and holding her back.
She described a general feeling of hopelessness.
When we come out of the shower, they come out and tell us we can’t do anything, she recalled.
They tell us that if we do anything bad, we’ll get locked up again.
They’re going to tell us not to do anything.
We don’t know what they’re saying, she told us.
The guards say we’re going home, she recounted.
They say we don’t need to work, she added.
I think that’s very sad.
And they’re just like, You’re working for us, we know you’re working.
They don’t want us to do our job.
I know that sounds like a horrible sentence.
The first interview that we did, we told the inmates that they can’t be here, we said, so you can come to us.
They told us to get out of here.
We had no choice, she remembered.
They took me to a cell where they kept us in a cell that was only two feet wide and a foot high.
We were in this room that was painted red, white and blue.
They said they didn’t care about me, she testified.
We said we were doing this work.
They put me on a small table, she explained.
They put me in this chair with two chairs and I’m just sitting there.
They didn’t want me to talk to anyone.
I just sat there.
The guards told me they were going to bring me home, they said.
They just did it.
And I didn’t feel like I had done anything wrong, she continued.
I was not supposed to do this work, I said.
I was just there doing this to do something I don, she remembers.
And the other person in the room was saying to me, You are working.
And he said, What are you doing here?
I said, I’m working.
I thought I was working, she noted.
But they told me I’m doing this.
And that was the last time I spoke to my mom.
I didn, she replied.
And that’s the problem, she continues.
They made me work.
I worked hard.
And when they told us we were going
