Ok We were just watching Cell block 6 on TLC, about the women in jail. I'm a little pissed the f**k off right now. I think its great that they have to ability to work within the jails & prison to make money to have on their books & give them something to do. But there were girls who got takin to work at a recycle plant outside of the jail. That pisses me off. There are ppl out here on the outside w...ho need jobs more then they do. we don't get free meals 3 times a day we have to pay for it. We don't get to live for free we have to pay rent & for the ppl out here who are lucky enough to have jobs they have to pay taxes which pay for the ppl in jail to eat & live for free. give them jobs within the jail but don't give them jobs outside the jail that someone unemployed with rent/mortgage, bills, insurance to pay& Kids to take care of could & would love to have. I would be more then willing to stand by a belt thingy for 8hrs picking recyclables out of a line of trash if it ment I could get a real pay check & file taxes & get the f**k off welfare & have money to do things with my kids. They don't need the damn jobs we do! I just had to rant about that. It makes me so mad. They get free food while I have to pay for my kids food at school(well my kids get free lunch but you know what I mean.) They get free housing & know they have a place to sleep, while I'm struggling to pay my rent & bills every month. They get free cable, WTF do they need TV for?? I have to pay for cable so my kids can have their Disney channel. & from what I hear in the prisons some prisons they have internet! WTF?! Anyway Im done now!

So much to say about this.



Jail is not a hay day.
So stop making it look like it is.
They have those "jobs" to be able to call their family ..which I assume you get to see your family everyday.

im not complaining about the fact that i pay rent now am i saying I'd rather be in jail. they get everything for free & they get just handed a job that someone not in jail could really use. its not the point of how much they make. they are in jail they dont need a job period. i however have been looking for work like a crazy person everywhere i can & cant find anyone hiring. i would do anything to have the job they were givin without even having to try.

most of them in there (the ones that get to go out for work) have to pay fines... so they got to work to pay their fines so the government help them get those jobs so they can get their money back!

Have you ever been to jail?
I'm guessing not.



Go rob a bank.
Possibly shoot somebody.
All your problems are solved.

You're a moron. They use them because it's cheap labor. Same reason companies hire illegals. I'm sure your whiney ass wouldn't work for less than minimum wage. It's part of how they pay back their room and board :roll:

Call recycling plants and apply? I'm sure they don't just pick random inmates and say 'here have a job'. They'd have to be willing to interview and stuff like everyone else.

did i say jail was fun? no i didnt! they have jobs with in the jail. so why do they need to have one at a place outside the jail that a person that didnt f**k up their live could have? if they wanted to be able to see their kids everyday & talk to their kids everyday then maybe they should not have gottin their asses thrown in jail in the first place! i get to see my family bacause im smart enough to obey the law & not get thrown in jail.

They don't get paid what a "free" person would to do those jobs. They work to have money on their books to be able to call their families and to buy necessities (toothbrush, deodorant, shampoo, etc). It's not like they're out working and makin' bank to spend on all these luxury items. It's also not their fault you're struggling.

If it pisses you off that bad, you could always do a crime & go there yourself. Lose custody of your kids. You wont have to worry about "being on welfare" Let's not forget about giving up your freedom, having a record, work for a dollar or so a day, or & those 3 free meals a day. Get over it, & if it bothers you that bad, next time don't watch it.
