Minimum Wage - Including Prisoner Labour

Imagine that they will be made to think there is no value in good hard work because people will look down on them, make them slaves. So they would rather go back to gangs again or bad old ways when they are released.

If the prisoners are rewarded with a decent minimum wage, it will make them realize that they can also survive if they are willing to work hard. That is positive reform message to them.

Thus, in my view, to establish a Minimum wage even for the prisoners, is an important move towards the Yellow Ribbon Movement.
