BP Hires Prison Labor to Clean Up Spill While Coastal Residents Struggle

Interesting report in the Nation about how BP prefers to employ prisoners to clean up their mess rather than the workers whom their polution has put out of a job.  Apparently they are cheaper and easier to manage.
Employers like them because they are guaranteed a worker who's on time, drug-free, and sober and because they do get a tax break.
More about this story on the CAPS (Campaign against Prison Slavery) website.
