"When I was in prison I worked 3 shifts a day, 5 days a week, starting at 5 AM and ending at 8 PM. I was paid $5.25 a month. Pay for the inmates who facilitate UNICOR workers (by making their food, washing their laundry, etc,) is even lower than the wages cited in the above graphics. The prison industry is also a slave industry, and it isn’t just corporations who benefit. All the furniture you see in federal buildings, post offices, DMVs, etc, where do you think it comes from? Prison labor. I think a lot of people know about states that use prison labor for license plates, but fewer people know that the plaques on doors at city halls, and sometimes the doors themselves, come from prison labor. The incarcerated are a hyper-exploited class unto themselves, and almost no one seems to be helping them to organize."
Given the fact that the majority of prisoners are poor people and/or people of color, and that the majority of prisoners are convicted of non-violent crimes such as drug use/sales and/or theft, etc., this is a crime against humanity.
Moreover, the for-profit private prison industry is one of the fastest growing in America. That means that already-super-rich investors and owners make millions of dollars off of super-exploited slave labor in the prisons. This is an outrage. It is the intersection of racism, capitalism, and repression and it is a blight on the U.S. and the human species.

All have been included. I have the most fantastic playlist. 27 tracks with 27 fantastic female vocalists/artists/musicians singing 27 really rad songs.
I know it’s finals week when I’m willing to spend this long on a playlist.
Here’s what I’ve got so far. Suggest more for the love of god I want this to be my all time favorite playlist.
I’m trying to make a playlist of badass women in music and I need more ideas. It’s not really thematic except that it’s women who totally rock. So far I’ve got
- Kate Wolf
- Stevie Nicks
- Tegan and Sara
- Mariee Sioux
- Esperanza Spalding
- Janelle Monae
- Yeah Yeah Yeahs
- Joan Baez
any other ideas?
