Am not against allowing them to work , I think most prisoners would choose to work as it makes the days go a lot quicker. Still think it should be voluntary and that they should be allowed to earn some money for their labour even if it's only a pittance.Well yes, but it can be dealt with outside of the slavery aspect.
They broke the law and are liable for X fee to the state for their duration of incarceration to cover costs. For them to pay off the fee they provide their labour at a set price per hour.
