No, and prisons should be entirely revamped into a better system, either handled by local government units or the national government. Instead, fine non-violent offenders or make them do community service, and provide education and rehabilitation programs for prisoners.

Yes, but such companies should be required to adhere to strict guidelines and rehabilitation quotas to encourage reintegration and discourage the criminal justice system from imprisoning people for profit.

@LangworthyUS9th from Michigan answered…2yrs

No this creates incentives to fill the prisons. We need prison reform focus more on rehabilitation, job skills, life skills and coping skills.
