lets not get into what prison sentences are or arent justified. Thats not something that's up for debate here. It is a widely accepted assumption that most prisoners dont actually belong in prison. But whats wrong with prisoners working while in prison? Seriously, what in the fuck else are they going to do? Diddling other men's assholes without a dental dam only maintains it's novelty affect for so long.

Im not a fan of companies getting free labour

Didnt the nazis run a similar system to jack up profits and efficiency in its slave labour camps?

that being said, i dont oppose the prisoners being employed to do some good, not lining some fatcat's wallet

Exactly my views. Working to clean up trash or something is one thing. In fact there are prisons where prisoners take care of farm animals etc (if you want to count that as working) and the re-incarceration rate is some of the lowest in the world. working to make some ass a fortune so he doesn't have to pay employees is another issue entirely.
