MAGA Supreme Court Revives Slavery: Could You Be Enslaved?

MAGA Supreme Court criminalizes poverty creating more prison slave labor for big business Republican donors.

Supreme Court criminalizes homelessness

The conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court has decided on another landmark case, making sleeping outside or camping overnight in a vehicle potentially illegal. - MSN

A person arrested for being homeless, could potentially end up a prison laborer earning little if anything. Corporations profit from cheap prison slave labor and spend millions to lobby Republicans. Republicans have cut federal benefits driving more people into being homeless. And Republicans have packed the Supreme Court with right wing extremists who have criminalized being homeless. Imagine becoming a slave for the crime of being poor.

Use this relationship map to see how corporations have rigged the system to increase their profits with prison labor.

  • America spends over $80 billion annually to incarcerate 2.2 million people in deplorable facilities.
  • The social costs of our failing criminal legal system are carried largely by low-income and minority communities.

Big business exploits prison labor

More than 4,1000 companies in the U.S. profit from mass incarceration. Many of these are prisons themselves, but some are companies who rely on penal labor to manufacture goods or provide services. Around 63,000 prisoners produce goods for external sale. - Market Realist

  • Verizon uses inmates to provide telecommunication services.
  • Fidelity Investments uses some held assets to fund the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), an organization that promotes inmate work.
  • Kmart and JCPenney use inmate labor in Tennessee to make denim products.
  • Walmart uses prison labor to clean barcodes so products can be resold.
  • Some cheese and fish from Whole Foods comes from prison labor.
  • Circuit boards from IBM come from Texas prisoners.
  • Wendy's and McDonald's use prison labor to process beef for their food products.

List of companies using prison labor

TakeAway: Being poor isn't a crime, but MAGA Supreme Court Justices flying on private jets with billionaires don't know that. Vote for Democrats to fix the justice and prison system that billionaires have rigged for themselves.
