On the recycling and trash sorting issue. Why can we not make JackCo prison inmates perform this work? What happened to work camps? They were successful, provided a benefit to society to offset the extreme costs of incarceration. Recycling on it's own is not profitable. So, take away the labor costs and what products are sold on to the private industry go back in to the prison system budget.
