Il business del sistema carcerario (negli USA)

Varie

Sapevo che il carcere negli USA è un business, con i reclusi sfruttati per lavori pagati pochi centesimi di dollaro all’ora, ma non sapevo che anche i famigliari venissero munti il più possibile.

Since being asked to write this review, I’ve paid $53 to the telecommunications company Securus so that a friend incarcerated in New York could call me—a $3 activation fee in addition to a $50 deposit in his account for future collect calls—and $50 to JPay, a subsidiary of Securus that bills itself as “the most trusted name in corrections,” so that I could email with people incarcerated here in the Northwest. This money is on top of my regular acquisition of stamps and envelopes to maintain traditional forms of correspondence with incarcerated friends who do not have email access.
