Join us when we talk to Bob Sloan, a, former offender who worked inside the prison industries for PRIDE. Since 2003 he has been researching prison industries and the connections between those industries and private corporate profits. His work led him to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) who wrote the Prison Industries Act passed in many U.S. States. Together ALEC, the NCIA (National Correctional Industries Association) and corporations have deregulated the PIE program to exploit prisoners for higher profits. He has exposed these activities and has written prolifically about the money trail, ALEC and prisoner exploitation through both industry and privatization of prison facilities.
This is going to be good! Be sure to tune in!
