NEW Economy & Corrections


This week inside Economy on the Forums the discussion of capitalism and greed continues as Jon writes: "charst, with all due respect, you have engaged in a behavior simply serving to further totalitarian approaches to government: labeling these periods as somehow being unbridled capitalism.

Its funny they use their cell phones all day for personal calls yet we cant make any or receive any unless it’s an emergency sent through management. I also find it funny the inmates have access to make phone calls 16 hrs a day. Seems to me like managements priorities are messed up. But then again we feel like the inmate more often than not as an employee here in Ohio. full thread
