Whittle 4 While a prisoner is laboring in the field, he does not receive any health or life insurance, and does receive a just wage due to his punishment.

Just like the Peoples Republic of China: Prisons create new markets for law enforcement technology, provide cheap labor for corporations, add to the census of depopulated rural counties, disenfranchise poor and minority people, and lower official unemployment statistics Rhodes As one can imagine, the prison population does not receive the minimum wage that a free civilian would receive as required by law, and again, creates a product that is not created by the hard-working civilians in a trade union or guild for a just wage that supports an all American family.

Rather, the labor is performed by people who are at the same class as a communist or third-world, developing nation, where irregularities are the name of the game.

Looking at text is plain the majority of the time, and if you do not have a clue what the words stand for, it might be time to have a dictionary handy.

On the opposite, looking up every single word in a given passage in the dictionary whether online or print is very time Whittle 6 consuming, and is not acceptable for high school and college students, who should know several words, provided they are familiar with the genre or theme of the text.

Andy Dufrense may have escaped from prison and was a fugitive never found, but in real life, fugitives like you will in all probability be found and surrender to more criminal charges to an already thick file folder.

Yes indeed, fugitives do escape prison today and are never captured, but it unlikely that you will escape today because a Department of Homeland Security was established by the United States Government as a reaction toward the September 11, terrorist attacks, and keeping innocent citizens safe and secure.
